Smart Scrimpers

We are a group of people who got together over common interests. We believed that we could save a fortune by applying and sharing our skills, hobbies or know-how. We realized that the cost of living could be lower if we pooled resources. Realizing that that's what people used to do as a community we decided to find a place to meet up and open it up to anyone else who wanted to be smart about saving money. Funding from the Health Lottery has enabled us to hire a regular weekly venue. It has given us the opportunity to invite guest tutors for anything from basic car maintainance to reupholstery and enabled us to buy equipment to allow us to complete projects. We believe that everyone has got time, knowledge, tips, skills or know how that they can share. So if you want to meet new people, have a brew and a laugh, learn something new and become a super smart Scrimper come round and join in.
