The Scrapstore was thrilled to be asked to make bespoke bunting for the recent Street Party in Cowick Road, Tooting. Much fun was had by our volunteers making it out of felt off-cuts, otherwise destined for incineration.
The street party was brilliant. The sun was shining, the atmosphere and music were fantastic and we even got burgers and sweeties. We were really pleased to bump into our old friend Sadiq Khan (he said he loved our bunting!) who has been a long-term supporter of Work and Play - hope to see you soon at the Scrapstore Mr Mayor!
Feedback from Enable Arts and Leisure (Cath Mattos):
'The bunting was so amazing, and looked fantastic at The Streets London in Tooting yesterday. It really decorated the street well and looked so professional. So many people commented on it. Thanks so much for your hard work with it.'
We are so proud of the Scrapstore's wonderful volunteers who worked together on the project - and in particular Teresa the designer and chief seamstress.
We always love community collaboration projects, so please do get in touch if you would like us to work with you to make decorations for your special event.
