Library of Things

A community hiring service, with volunteer support and local sponsorship enabling us to hire those things that are normally cheaper to just buy. Let’s make sharing as easy as amazon, accessible to all, and more fun!

Now open Thursday 12:00-18:00 & Saturday 10:00-13:00

Repair Cafés

A free volunteer repair service, fixing your broken stuff and helping you learn how to look after your clothes, bikes, electricals, stopping things going to waste.
