Share Shed

I was delighted to visit the Share Shed in Totnes today and meet with Larch Maxey to hear all about their success. They are currently based at The Network of Wellbeing's office, 16 High Street, Totnes, TQ9 5RY. The Share Shed is a 'library of things' where people can borrow all sorts of useful things, ranging from ladders, drills, carpet cleaners, camping and gardening equipment, sewing machines, and much more! The project enables local people to borrow items at nominal cost so that they don't have to buy them for themselves. The aim is to build a more resourceful community, allowing people to connect with each other and share things they may need just once in a while.

I know that the Share Shed is looking for a new long term home and I would encourage anyone with any ideas about this to get in touch with the team by telephoning 07516 908237 or emailing info@shareshed.org.uk
