Walthamstow Tool Library: coming soon

We’re setting up a garden tool lending library with Forest Recycling Project. The tool library will be just off Priory Court, and we’re looking for donations of second hand tools. Do you have a neglected spade or an unloved trowel? Or even a mattock or a sickle? They could find a new lease of life at the tool library.

There’s a full list of the things we need on FRP’s website and if you have things to donate you can either drop them at the FRP workshop on Bakers Avenue on Tuesday or Friday mornings, or email to arrange another time. Donated tools need to be safe and in working order. Thank you!

Please also email if you’d like to find out about joining or volunteering with the tool library.

The space for the tool library is being provided by Waltham Forest Council’s housing services.
