OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
SkillShop is developing a social enterprise village at Pen Dinas (adjacent to NPTC Newtown campus) dedicated to closing the economic loop in Mid Wales.
We promote and develop local skills and products, and encourage re-purposing and re-use to create new value from old; to challenge the throw-away mindset that is ecologically unsustainable.
We run workshops and services for local people, led by local people, to meet the needs of local people. We aim to make for a more sustainable tomorrow by demonstrating better practice today.
NEED A CONFERENCE ROOM? MEETING SPACE?
We have a bespoke Conference/Meeting/Office/Classroom measuring 20ft by16ft available for hire right now, as part of a re-development of our Pen Dinas site.

Per hour: £10
Per half day (up to 4 hours): £30
All day (up to 8 hours): £55
Discounted rates for Registered Charities and other such organisations available on application.
“The most important skill you need is the ability to learn how to change and grow."
