Time Bank Plus

Don’t buy it, Borrow It!

Time Bank Plus,  is starting a new project offering locals the opportunity to borrow rather than buy useful items like tools, household and gardening equipment, catering utensils, camping items, children & baby equipment. The project is being funded by a grant from the Bath &West Community Energy Community Fund.

The Borrow It ‘store’ will be located at the Time Bank centre in Twerton High Street and will be open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturday mornings. People wishing to borrow items will need to register with the project and asked for a small donation towards costs (eg 50p or £1).

They are looking for donations of items to stock the Borrow It ‘store’.  Alternatively please let them know if you could offer a ‘virtual’ contribution to the project, ie loan of an item which you will continue to own and keep at your own home.

A wishlist of items they are currently looking for appears below.

Please contact us on 01225 442813 or email timebankplus@googlemail.com if you are able to help.
