Henbury youngsters get new toy box - full of scrap
YOUNGSTERS at Henbury Court Children's Centre have a new toy box with a difference - it is full of scrap.
The new PlayPod, provided by St Werburgh charity Scrapstore, is filled with donated scrap and clean waste that businesses routinely throw away. It includes cardboard tubes, boxes, netting, unwanted phones, keyboards, packaging and steering wheels.

Day centre manager Haley Mogg said: "This is an exciting new venture for Henbury Court.
