More tools than you can shake a stick at!

Tools are often quite costly, sometimes only used sporadically, but always require a lot of resources to produce. So why buy when you can borrow?

Exactly what we thought, which is why we set up the Walthamstow Tool Library in Priory Court.

The library is a joint project between Forest Recycling Project, William Morris Big Local and Waltham Forest Council and it has a special focus on garden tools. Our aim is to make garden tools accessible and affordable, so that everyone in the neighbourhood and beyond is able to green their yards, gardens, balconies, and community spaces.

The principle is simple: For only a small yearly membership fee you can choose tools from our online catalogue and borrow them for 7 days. Currently members can pick up their items every Friday afternoon between 1 and 5 at the tool shed in 2a Priory Court. Good condition tool donations are also always welcome and can be dropped off during our opening times!

We have great plans to eventually become a vibrant community hub that connects people and ideas to make our lives and surroundings greener, healthier and more inclusive!
