Our Cambridge Community Scrapstore sources interesting and unusual arts and crafts items that members can buy at a low cost.

Anyone can joinapply for PlayEast membership. It costs £5 per year for individual membership, or £10 per year for groups.

Members fill a basket with the materials of their choice. Each basket costs £1.50. Some materials cost extra – these are clearly marked.

We’re usually open on Wednesday evenings and some Saturday afternoons during the school term, and there’s always something new in stock!

We encourage reuse and recycling – materials are often unwanted goods from local businesses and individuals. The scheme offers businesses a way to reduce the amount of waste they send to landfill, and the associated costs. Find out more about how to donate materials further down the page.
