Duncan joined James Gray, Conservative MP for North Wiltshire, last week to open the brand new woodworking facility at the not-for-profit, wood recycling organisation Wiltshire Wood Recycling (WWR).
Rather than cutting the customary ribbon, the two MPs signed a commemorative wooden sculpture, carved especially for WWR’s fifth birthday.
The sculpture, carved from wood that would otherwise be destined for landfill, has been created by WWR’s part-time carpenter and their volunteers.
Wiltshire Wood Recycling was formed in order to divert unwanted but re-usable wood from landfill, to give it a new application whilst simultaneously providing volunteering and training opportunities to individuals unable to access mainstream education and employment. The woodwork shop has been expanded in order to create more space for training and to increase the number and range of items that can be made and sold from wood waste.
