Not locking down

Well, we weren’t sure whether we would have to pause like we did earlier in the year, but we don’t, so, like many others, we are doing click and collect – as normal, I guess. Please do go on using the Library. We have our Covid protocols and you don’t have to come into our space.

But, don’t forget that we also do delivery and collection.

Back SHARE-ing

We are re-opening the Library to borrowers from this Saturday (July 11th).

  • New opening times (Thursday and Saturday 12-6 only for now)
  • New membership – £5 (or more) a month, usable as credit against borrowing
  • Covid19-safe procedures
  • Trialling a delivery service

Fallen leaves all over the place

Maurice says:

“Don’t forget that the invertebrates that keep your garden healthy need somewhere to shelter for the winter. But they surely don’t need all those leaves that have fallen on the paths, lawns, patios. So if you need the kit to sweep them up, you could borrow one or other of our leaf-blowers. Or you could even go back to basics with one of our rakes. But either way, leave some leaf litter for the creepy-crawlies, do.” 

October is a beautiful month…

Freya says: “October is a beautiful month of autumnal colours and first frosts. Crisp, blue-sky days are the perfect time to tidy up and cut back in the garden. 

Why not borrow one of our garden shredders to help you turn that great pile of twigs, leaves, hedge cuttings, etc. to a manageable bulk for you compost bin or heap. Your garden will be spotless in no time.”

Fruit picking time

 

Maurice says: “So many apples and pears are just out of reach and you have to pick them off the floor after they have been bruised by gravity. Or climb the tree, but don’t lean out too far. Or climb an unsteady ladder.

Instead, you could borrow our extendable fruit picker which will give you that extra reach to get your produce down safe and unharmed. Your friends and neighbours will be delighted at what you can then share with them.”
