Urgent announcement

Due to many of our volunteers being vulnerable, we have taken the decision to close our doors. A skeleton staff will be at PARC for a limited time so should you need resources please leave a message on or call us on 01332 299165 and we will endeavour to get back to you.

If you are going to self-isolate, how about decorating?
Without wanting to minimise the current very important health situation, have you thought about what you might do to spend your time if you are having to self-isolate?
Are you wondering if now is a good time to do some decorating? We think so!
If you're going to be busy doing some painting and decorating, you can get all your supplies (plus more) at our RePaint scheme at very affordable prices. Paint starts from just £1 per litre, available in a huge variety of colours, perfect for your home, upcycling project or community space.
Leave us a message on 01332 299165 to see what paint we have in stock and how we can help you.
Stay safe.
All at PARC

The Derby Play and Recycling Centre is a registered charity whose main purpose is to promote and facilitate the recycling and reuse of non-toxic scrap materials to reduce the amount of waste going into landfill. The Centre gives people access to these low cost materials which they and their children can use in art and play projects to develop their skills in communication, cooperation and creativity. We encourage all our Volunteers, Members, and the general public, to observe the 3 Rs​.
