What we do

We also make small and large raised bed planters that can be treated in our willow green weather durable coat. Additionally, we make chopsticks benches with or without backs that are also treated in the same weather durable coat. We can even make trellis fencing to go around areas such as business grounds which co-inside perfectly with the horseshoe planters.

These products are ideal for home gardens or even on business grounds.

Woodchip and Biomass Fuel

Chopsticks chipping plant

Chopsticks have a chipping plant installed at the workshop. This plant is used to produce biomass woodchip fuel made from clean waste timber that isn’t suitable for the production of our kindling. The fuel has an extremely low moisture content making it a high quality product. The biomass fuel is available for purchase and we are able to arrange delivery in bulk loads or in builder bags upon request! The price of biomass woodchip fuel varies according to supply and demand but if you are interested or have any queries or questions then do not fail to contact us.

Planters and Other Products

Planters and other products

Lucky Horseshoe planters are a premium grade product made by our members here at Chopsticks; they add a touch of class to any garden! It is a beautiful creation made from wood, treated in an attractive shade of willow green with a fibre lining that retains moisture and securely holds compost and plants. That’s not all!

We recently made a defibrillator cabinet for the Community First Responders to go in Tesco in Northallerton as a project suggested to us. We are also in the stages of creating a fold up bar for the Wensleydale Railway too. Chopsticks consider no job too big or small and are always welcome to trying to make new creations!

Room Hire

Rooms for hire

We have two rooms available upstairs that we hire out to businesses or small organisations to use for meetings or training purposes. Our small room can facilitate up to 12 people and our large room can fit up to 25. We organise the room to any layout upon request and we also have toilet and kitchen facilities upstairs too. For an additional fee we can provide you with a lunch as well as tea and coffee. If you would like to book any of our rooms then give us a call on 01609 761661 or email us on info@chopsticks.org.uk.

Kindling Wood

Chopsticks does exactly as it says in the name, we chop sticks! Our main activity here is the production of our premium grade kindling with biomass woodchip fuel made from timber which would have otherwise been sent to landfill. Our members chop, sort and pack our timber which is then sold to YOU so each bag you buy goes towards the growth and development of our members and our charity! We are proud to be BSL authorised meaning that we do our bit for the environment too! In 1995 a group of resourceful members with learning disabilities started to chop firewood from scrap timber under the name ‘Chopsticks’. Thus creating who we are today!

Garden Care Services

Need a hedge cutting? Need a lawn mowing? Then we can help! Here at Chopsticks we also offer a Garden Care Maintenance programme which includes small, regular garden maintenance tasks that our members undertake for the general public. This is a great opportunity for the general public to meet our members and find out more about us! We maintain gardens in the local area covering places such as Northallerton, Thirsk and Bedale. We charge a non-competitive rate of £11 for a small garden and up to £25 for a large garden. The cost of the job is determined by our Garden Care Maintenance Supervisor Eddie Baker who works with our lovely members in completing the garden tasks!

ChopArts

At Chopsticks we like to provide our members with as many opportunities and activities as possible. Our staff runs ChopArts, a Monday crafts class for both our members and private clients where they can be creative and form great friendships!

Shortly we will be introducing a glass crafts class which will give our members and clients opportunity to create personal bespoke glassware.

Community Outreach

Chopsticks also provide a community outreach scheme in which we offer community based services that aim to fulfil the individual needs of our customers; we are on the North Yorkshire County Council’s approved list of non-regulated service providers. Our service is available to anyone with a disability or older people in need of support to maintain independence and a quality lifestyle.

We can help assist with things such as shopping, paying bills, support for social activities or getting to and keeping appointments and much more! Ask and we will do our best to meet your needs or the needs of those you care for.

If you are interested in our community outreach scheme then please contact us on: Info@chopsticks.org.uk or call our office on 01609 761661
