Join SHARE for Volunteering That’s Different

Projects, projects, projects

It’s Jess here. SHARE Fromes Marketing and Operations Manager. Ask anybody around town that knows me and they’ll tell you I’m always up to something at SHARE Library of Things. And now I need your help to make some of those ideas come about.

Enquire about volunteering by emailing [email protected] or register online.

Living Window Gardener – Volunteer

Are you good at popping in and drinking tea? Have you got a clue about gardening too? SHARE is looking for somebody to do just that twice a week to help us take care of our living window garden so that we can grow some great food indoors for people to come and help themselves to when it’s ready.

It really is that simple. Just a watering, a trim and a feeding (non chemical mind) whilst you sup away on a hot drink of your choosing. Days and times are flexible to suit.

SHARE Threads Assistant – Volunteer

SHARE Threads, our kids secondhand costume hire service, is opening on 1st July 23. We’re looking for volunteers to help clean and repair costumes, assist parents and children if they want to try costumes on and run workshops to show people how to make costumes from things they have at home.

If you can give time to any or all of these tasks we would love to hear from you. Cleaning and fixing materials will be provided and days and times are flexible to suit.

A busy year here at SHARE
LatestLeave a comment

Life here at SHARE Frome has been busy in 2022 and we have yet more changes to come in the new year which we hope will make borrowing from us easier.

In July of this year after an 18 month application process, we were really proud to finally become a UK registered charity. In September we made another big step and separated from local Community Entrepreneurship business Edventure, who have owned us ever since starting us seven years ago as part of their regular Business Start-up courses run for young adults. 

You may have noticed changes going on inside our shop too. A retro paint job was finished just in time for our first ever fund-raising Funk Soul Disco in June of this year. This unique and fun event was a great success bringing staff, volunteers, trustees, customers and the general public together. And we’re not stopping there as plans are now underway for the Big Library Reshuffle, a two-day volunteering event on 21st & 22nd December which aims to improve our existing Library of Things service by allowing us to store more items members can borrow and create a space where individuals and organisations can come and share their skills and knowledge about recycling, repairing, reducing and reusing; values that are core to our charitable purpose.

We are also currently looking for a new Library of Things Assistant to replace are long-term staff member Clare Krige and as of Monday 9th January 2023 we’ll be changing our opening hours. We’ll have an early shift (8:30-11:00) on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays to suit those out on the school run and our later shift (15:30-18:00) on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays will make borrowing more manageable for people who work.

The average drill is used for only 13 minutes in its entire lifetime.

What if, instead of buying that drill, you could borrow one from a neighbour you have never met before?

Welcome to SHARE:Frome!

Our thinking is that too much money nowadays is spent on ‘stuff’. Things are used for a short space of time and then spend most of their lifetime locked away in a shed, kitchen, garage etc.

Spend Less, Waste Less, Connect More!

Our aim is to get people spending less, wasting less and connecting more. And by doing this, help people to save money, reduce carbon and waste, and cultivate a happier, more resilient community.

SHARE is a community space for Frome, tailored to local people’s needs. A place for people to borrow objects, share skills and connect with others, in a welcoming and fun environment.
