SHARE wouldn’t be the community resource it is without our amazing volunteers. So let us introduce them to you…

Al

Al BloorWhat are your hobbies outside of SHARE?

As I kid I loved those big ‘Complete Craft collection’ books with a hundred different things to try. And that’s pretty much where I still am today: I love to get hands-on with needle and thread, hammer and nails, paintbrush, garden spade, etc.

What do you love about Frome?

We moved here a year ago and immediately felt at home. I love that Frome has no pretensions, but gets its collective sleeves rolled up and gets stuff done.

How long have you been a volunteer with us?

About six months.

Why did you want to become a SHARE volunteer?

Selfishly, to ensure that SHARE continues to exist for my own use. In addition, I hate to throw stuff away, so it’s great to be getting good use out of things that might otherwise be unloved or unused.

I love the community spirit that has developed over the 36 years that I have lived here.

How long have you been a volunteer with us?
Since the shop opened.

Why did you want to become a SHARE volunteer?
Because I think we have become too materialistic and sharing things is the way to go in order not to waste this wonderful planets resources.

Chloe

Chloe BrayWhat are your hobbies outside of SHARE?
I enjoy reading, writing, journalling, blogging – anything to do with the written word! I love to spend time with my cat, I dabble in graphic design and photography, and I’ve recently taken up knitting.

What do you love about Frome?
I love that it’s a very friendly town with a strong community. Having moved here from Bath in August 2018, I’m enjoying discovering more beautiful spaces in the town, checking out the markets and finding out about all the fantastic community projects.

How long have you been a volunteer with us?
Since October 2018.

Why did you want to become a SHARE volunteer?
I started volunteering at SHARE because I love projects that help bring communities together, and I like the idea of reducing waste and saving people money by sharing the things that would otherwise be gathering dust in our homes. As a newbie to Frome, I hope volunteering with SHARE will help deepen my connection with the town.

How long have you been a volunteer with us?
I started to volunteer at Share just after I moved to Frome 2, years ago.

Why did you want to become a SHARE volunteer?
I needed DIY equipment and came across Share then and it really helped. Especially as I had a neighbour who taught me how to use various tools!

…And the shy ones:

As well as our shop volunteers we have a number of people who volunteer as fixers at repair events: Alex, Bruno, Emily, Jackie, James, Jude, Kier, Lisa, Luke, Mick, Pauline, Pete, PJ, Robin, Rosie, Sheila, Stina and more!

Thanks a million! Aliss & Sam, managers of SHARE.

Another Happy Repair Cafe Visitor!
LatestLeave a comment

Here’s our resident PAT tester and general electrical fixer Paul looking very happy outside the SHARE shop! Paul’s ripped knees were repaired by one of our fantastic textiles repair people at Sunday’s repair café.

Paul's patches
Paul, one of our great volunteers, thrilled with his new knee patches!

Paul’s trousers have been given a new look with knee patches! These trousers could have gone to landfill, but instead have been turned into a one-of-a-kind piece of clothing which will hopefully last for many more years.

Our next repair café is Sunday, March 10th. Why not bring along any clothes with rips, stains, or a lot of wear and tear, and see them turned into something unique?

The 4 membership types available at SHARE: A library of things, in Frome.
23Jan
Membership Types Explained
LatestLeave a comment

At SHARE, we have 4 different types of membership. These are designed to suit all of our borrowers, from those who only borrow once or twice per year, to those who are always in need of something from our inventory. Our members of all types are what keep the shop open and thriving!

But we know choosing from several options can get confusing, so here’s a handy guide to choosing the right one for you.

PAY AS YOU GO

Price: £2 per year

Choose this one if…

  • You’re sure you’ll only need to borrow a few small items over the year.
  • You want a low upfront cost.
  • You’d like to try out SHARE at a lower cost before committing to more.

Pay-As-You-Go members pay full price to borrow items, which makes this the least cost-efficient option for frequent borrowers. If you think you’ll borrow only a couple of things per year, this might be the best choice for you. However, if you plan to borrow more frequently, or are in need of larger and more costly items, consider the memberships detailed below.

If you’re not sure how much you’ll enjoy being part of SHARE, a PAYG membership can also be a good way to sign up at a low cost and “trial” the service before jumping in.

STANDARD

Price: £15 per year

Choose this one if…

  • You’re more likely to borrow in bursts than regularly.
  • You’d like half price borrows and some freebies.
  • One upfront payment is most convenient for you.

Our standard membership is pretty good value for money for those who borrow several items per year. All standard members get half price on everything, all of the time! They can also borrow small items such as screwdrivers, hammers, etc. for free for a 2-day period. Unlike subscriber members (detailed next) they don’t receive monthly credit, but if you think you’ll borrow 10 things one month and nothing for the next few, this could be the right option.

Standard memberships are also convenient for anyone who can’t commit to regular payments, as they only require an upfront cost.

SUBSCRIBER

Price: £3.33 per month (6 months upfront)

Choose this one if…

  • You’re likely to become a frequent borrower.
  • You want the best value for money.
  • You’d like to support SHARE by guaranteeing some regular income for us.

For frequent borrowers, our subscriber membership is by far the best value for your money. Subscriber members get all the benefits of a standard membership, plus £5 of monthly credit in SHARE. Each month, subscribers can effectively borrow £5 worth of items for free! On top of this, as a subscriber member you’ll also get discounts from SHARE partners and free consumables (e.g. sandpaper sheets when borrowing a sander).

Subscriber members are billed for 6 months of membership upfront (£20), and after those 6 months pay £10 every 3 months. Signing up as a subscriber member gives SHARE some added security as we know we can rely on your payment. Thanks, subscribers!

SUPPORTER

Price: £50 or more

Choose this one if…

  • You really love SHARE and want to support us!
  • You have a little spare cash.

Our supporters receive the same benefits as standard members, but they’re individuals who have chosen to give us a very generous donation as well! We’re very grateful to all our subscriber members for their fantastic generosity. If you have some spare cash, want to support a community resource and/or we’ve been a big help to you, we’d love to see you become a supporter.

Conquer your New Year’s Resolutions With SHARE
LatestLeave a comment

As a new year rolls in, we all have great intentions for the 12 months ahead. But as time goes by, our goals can seem more daunting and less attainable. A lot of the time, this is simply because we don’t know where to start! Here’s a great place to start chipping away at those big goals: in the centre of Frome, at our library of things.

Here’s how SHARE can help with some of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions…

DIY equipment and tools to borrow in Frome.
Will you fix up the house or put the shed to good use this year? Our huge range of tools and DIY equipment can save you money and precious storage space.

1. Save Money.

This one is a no-brainer. Spending a few pounds to borrow something that would usually cost you tens or even hundreds of pounds, get used once and then gather dust will save you a lot of money over time. Before splurging on something pricey like a lawn mower, consider how much you would save by borrowing one from £4, only when you need it.

Check out our membership options – subscriber members get £5 of credit per month which saves even more for regular borrowers.

2. Eat Better and Exercise More.

When it comes to exercise, we have a whole section for sports in our inventory. Our stock ranges from dumbbells and a cricket set to more unusual fare such as our two unicycles. Eating better is made easy with our stock appliances like juicers, slow cookers, spiralizers and a smoothie maker. See what works for you before buying more expensive kitchen equipment!

3. Learn a new skill or hobby.

We have several sewing machines available, as well as dressmakers’ dummy and spinning wheel for the more ambitious crafters. Amateur artists may like our easel and oil painting kit. As for instruments, we have guitars, keyboards, ukeleles, microphones and music stands… and even a violin!

Or if you’d prefer to pick up something less artsy, we also have a wide range of baking accessories. Of course, we have every DIY tool you could possibly need to become handier this year!

Is sewing on your goals list for 2019? We have several machines, from small and modern to more beautiful fare like this Singer.

4. Spend more time with loved ones.

We have pretty much everything you need to take the family camping! Plus a lot of different sporting and games equipment for a day spent out in the sunshine. For rainy days, we have some board games to choose from. You can even create your own “big screen” at home with one of our projectors, and get cosy on the sofa with some homemade popcorn.

5. Prioritise self-care.

More and more people are realising how vital caring for yourself is. It doesn’t just benefit your mood but also helps your productivity, health, and ability to help others in the long term. Self-care could mean anything to you – a relaxing bath, a good book, a glass of wine in front of the TV, or working towards your dreams.

Stuck for ideas? Why not borrow some gardening equipment and spend some mindful time outdoors? You’ll thank yourself when Spring comes and the first flowers appear!

6. Get a new job.

We can’t get a new job for you, but we might be able to help you on your way! Thinking of starting your own business? Advertise your skills or services for free to build up some experience and contacts on our skills board.

Thinking of sending out job applications? Volunteering with us can help improve a range of skills from customer service, practical skills such as repairing, and building confidence with money handling and using technology. Get in touch if you’d like more information about the types of volunteer work available.

What are your New Year’s Resolutions? And how can we help?

When We’re Open Over Christmas and New Year
LatestLeave a comment

The holidays are a time to relax and enjoy yourself, which is just what our hardworking staff and volunteers will be doing!

Your last day to borrow and return items before Christmas will be Friday, December 21st. The shop will re-open on Friday, January 4th ready for whatever 2019 brings. Make sure you reserve items now to pick up on Wednesday or Friday if you need something over the festive break!

SHARE's shop in Frome is closed from 22nd December until 4th January 2019.
Our shop on The Bridge, near Frome Market Place, will be closed over Christmas on these dates.

Our usual maximum loan length for most items is a week, but this will be extended to 2 weeks over the holidays – so that you won’t need to renew the loan or accrue late fees. If you think you’ll need an item for a little longer, please let us know when you come in to pick it up.

We hope everyone has a wonderful time, no matter what you’re celebrating!

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.

Images of Frome community projects and enterprises SHARE has helped through loans and use of our space.
Some of the brilliant groups SHARE has loaned to and aided in Frome, helping community projects grow and be maintained. 

We have lent out gardening tools to Incredible Edible Frome to help them dig and plant up new beds of edible plants around town, as well as lending tools to the team behind the Community Fridge for maintenance and their extension of the fridge to include a community larder. The recent clothes swap initiative started by Edventure students has benefited from a few items, including sanders to prepare their handmade clothes rails.

Our inventory of 600+ items isn’t the only useful thing available though – our shop itself has been a great help to the community! Edventure Make students have set up their market stall outside the shop to sell the wares made with their newly-acquired skills, and we proudly hosted Santa this year, transforming the shop into Santa’s Grotto for the 2018 lights switch-on in Frome town centre.

For many community groups and small non-profits, the most useful parts of our inventory are event items like gazebos, tables, chairs and parasols for events such as markets and festivals. We’ve also helped a lot of meetings happen with the likes of our tea urns and drink dispensers, noticeboard, flip chart and laminator.

While these are standard items in many businesses, a lot of small groups wouldn’t be able to justify the cost of buying these things new, which is why SHARE is such an important resource.

Some of the fantastic groups we’ve worked with include:

And more!

Make Christmas Merrier with SHARE!
LatestLeave a comment
SHARE Christmas Display

The SHARE Christmas Window Display

Around 5 million tonnes of waste – both recyclable and not – is created around Christmas in the UK every year, equivalent to 450,000 double decker buses. At SHARE we want to do our small part in reducing this number by encouraging borrowing from our growing selection of Christmas items.

Save yourself money and storage space by borrowing our 6ft artificial Christmas tree from £3 per fortnight, covered in pine cone and berry decorations. Or steady your real tree (which can be recycled!) with one of our 3 tree stands.

Go for a new look this Christmas with one of 6 sets of baubles and decorations available to borrow. Choose from traditional red and gold, cool silver and blue, or bold pink and green bauble sets. Plastic and glass baubles can’t be recycled, so reusing or borrowing them is the best thing to do. If baubles aren’t enough, add some extra glamour to a Christmas gathering with a festive staircase garland from just £2 for 2 weeks!

Looking for more ways to reduce waste over Christmas? Here are our top tips:

    1. Wrap wisely.

    Check any wrapping paper you use is recyclable, as metallic and glitter papers have to be thrown in the household waste. Go a step further and give gifts in reusable gift bags, wrap them in fabric, or even put present in an extra gift of a homemade tote bag of you’ve got the time and skills. (Did you know we have 5 sewing machines at SHARE?)

    2. Make your own natural Christmas decorations.

    Christmas decorations such as wreaths can be made fairly quickly and easily at home, even with twigs and sprigs from your own garden. Once the festive season has passed, natural decorations like holly and ivy can be recycled in green or garden waste, and any DIY tools you’ll need are likely to be available to borrow from us.

    3. Buy local produce and get baking.

    Reduce plastic packaging and support local business by buying from local greengrocers, butchers and bakeries that use little or no plastic. Consider making festive cakes, biscuits and other treats at home to reduce packaging waste and delight friends and family. If your kitchen is sparse, SHARE has everything you need from bread makers and food mixers to cake pans and casserole dishes.

    4. Don’t just throw it all back in the attic.

    Once Christmas is over and the tree comes down, save yourself the headache of sifting through a dozen boxes of Christmas stuff next year by taking the time to sort through it. Fix or recycle broken strings of lights, take stock of leftover cards and wrapping paper, and put aside what you won’t use again for donation. If SHARE can’t take your items for our inventory, we may be able to sell them to raise funds or advise you on where to donate them.

    If you’d like to reserve items to guarantee you have them over Christmas, please contact us, reserve online or pop into the shop. Happy holidays!

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.
