Tools Shed Covid-19 Update


Good news – most of our tool collection points are now open to the public so please start bringing us your old tools! It’s a good idea to check with individual collection points in advance as some have reduced opening hours and a couple of our garden centres have been unable to start collections yet but most are ready to receive all those old tools you’ve been clearing out during the lockdown.

Community gardening groups and schools wanting to apply for refurbished tools can continue to sign up via the website here, but please be aware that due to a backlog of requests, it may be several months before we’re able to offer you some new tools. Thanks for your ongoing support for the Tools Shed project – we’re looking forward to getting back to full capacity very soon.
