Colchester Highwoods Ripples RefillA community project set up by two school cildren in Highwoods. Initially available to friends, family and people living in Highwoods. You can refill  washing up liquid, white vinegar and bicarbonate of soda (for now!). They will try to make sure they are here after school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
