CoStar is a Community Group based at The Threepenny Bit Community Hall opposite Fairhill Methodist Church on the hill.
The group relies on volunteers to work within the Community on a variety of projects.  Costar organises litter picks and works closely with Local Schools. It also runs a weekly fruit and veg scheme, a Re-paint project where it recycles paints from the large DIY stores and sells it to the community at a much reduced price £1.50 per litre and prevents this paint from being sent to landfill.
