Keep it Clean!
LatestLeave a comment

Keep it clean!We’d like to encourage all borrowers to return items in as good condition as possible.

Bringing back items clean improves the efficiency of SHARE as a community resource.

As much as we’d love to provide the service of cleaning items that have been brought back dirty, we sadly don’t have the resources. i.e. When a lawn mower comes back with grass still in it we have no courtyard out back to empty it (we don’t even have our own wheelie bin!) Similarly, we don’t have hot water in the shop so can’t easily clean kitchen items that come back messy.

So please do make every effort to bring items back in a similar state to how you borrowed them.

Despite other members loving the concept of sharing, it doesn’t extend to sharing mess left by a previous borrower. If things are brought back in a particularly bad state we may have to ask you take the item back and bring it back clean, or even ask for a fee. But don’t worry, this will only happen in extreme cases. So long as you’ve done what you can to clean any mess you’ve made and brought the item back in a similar state to how you borrowed it then that’s fine by us.

How SHARE Helps Frome Community Projects
LatestLeave a comment

Since the library of things opened in early 2015, it has served the community in a lot more ways than individuals borrowing things for their use at home. SHARE’s members include many businesses and organisations in the local area. Thanks to our huge inventory of DIY and events equipment, our community enterprise has been a crucial resource for many more projects that support our values of spending less, wasting less, and strengthening community ties.

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.
