The new Bicester Green Centre for Skills, Sustainability and Secondhand Stuff opened its doors on Friday last week.

The centre is the first of its kind in the county, and will focus initially on repairing bicycles, furniture and electrical items.

In future, the facility based at Unit 2 in the McKay Trading Estate, Launton Road, could also host the Cycle for Bicester bike loan scheme, talks and demonstrations.

Cherwell District Council (CDC) chairman, Councillor Lawrie Stratford, cut the ribbon last Friday.

The centre is a joint project involving CDC, Oxfordshire County Council, Oxfordshire Waste Partnership, Resource Futures and Sanctuary Housing.

The centre is open from 10.30am to 5pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Repaired items will be sold in the adjoining Sobell House shop.
