Why are we closing down?
The enterprise is still solvent, however the Directors feel that it is no longer sustainable on its current site, and with no other suitable premises available we have taken the decision to close the wood store and workshop at Penn Farm Studios, the last day being Saturday October 17 2015. After that date we will be open by appointment only for customers to collect any outstanding purchases they have made from Cambridge Wood Works CIC. For more information please click here
Will I be able to buy reclaimed timber, products or services from you after 17 October 2015?
No, Cambridge Wood Works CIC will be wound up and dissolved, and will cease to sell any goods and services after 17 October 2015.
What about Cambridge Hotlogs?
Cambridge Wood Fuel Ltd will continue to produce and sell Cambridge Hotlogs, but you will not be able to collect them from the wood store at Penn Farm after Friday 17 October 2015 unless we have made arrangements with you to do so.
Where else can I pick up Cambridge Hotlogs?
There is an established network of suppliers who will continue to be serviced by Cambridge Wood Fuel Ltd. You can also continue to make purchases online for local delivery through Cambridge Wood Fuel. After 17 October 2015 all sales will be through Cambridge Wood Fuel Ltd who you will need to contact if you want to pick up the hotlogs yourself instead of having them delivered.
Will Cambridge Hotlogs continue to be made at Penn Farm Studios?
No. The production equipment is owned by Cambridge Wood Fuel Ltd and is not located at Penn Farm Studios

What happens to the assets when the CIC is wound up?
Any residual assets will be transferred to another CIC, charity or community group. Any such transfer has to be approved by the CIC regulator. If you think there are any charities, CIC’s or community groups that would benefit from any asset transfer, then please get in touch. Suitable organisations for receiving an asset transfer are those that share our aims, either in part or in whole:
The objects of the Cambridge Wood Works CIC are to carry on any activities which benefit the community, by, but not exclusively by:
sourcing, collecting and diverting all forms of timber waste in and around Cambridge from skips and normal household waste and re-using or recycling it into useful everyday products;
providing education, training to communities for people in the Cambridge area about the importance of recycling and re- using timber and wood products, in an effort to raise their awareness and increase their knowledge of the low carbon agenda.
