Bath Borrow It is a new project which we are setting up thanks to funding from Bath & West Community Energy.
Borrow It will offer people in B&NES the opportunity to borrow a range of useful items which are needed only for occasional use, such as tools, household and gardening equipment, catering utensils, camping items, children & baby equipment, etc – it could be anything from a hedge trimmer to a sewing machine, a gazebo or a chocolate fountain!
Did you know that the average drill is only used for 13 minutes during its entire lifetime? The Borrow It project will provide a way to reduce waste and clutter, make better use of resources and help people to save money.”
The Borrow It ‘store’ will be located at the Time Bank centre in Twerton High Street and will be open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturday mornings. People wishing to borrow items will need to register with the project and asked for a small donation towards costs (eg 50p or £1).
We are looking for donations of items to stock the Borrow It ‘store’. Alternatively please let us know if you would like to offer a ‘virtual’ contribution to the project, ie loan of an item which you will continue to own and keep at your own home.
Here is our wish list of useful items we are currently looking for (click on it to read).
Please contact us on 01225 442813 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to help. Many thanks.
