Our regular group activites at PICAL

We'd love to have your group join us!

We are always open to new groups utilising our facilities. Please send us an email with your ideas!



Boomerang Bags is a global, grassroots movement connecting and empowering local communities to tackle plastic pollution at its source.
Dedicated volunteers get together to create re-useable 'Boomerang Bags' using local second-hand materials as a means to replace plastic bags. These Boomerang Bags are then either provided for free or for a small donation at local supermarkets, markets and shops. More information can be found
