Walthamstow Tool Library

Covid 19 update

For the safety of everyone we have closed the Walthamstow Tool Library ‘for walk in’ during the current lockdown 

We will still be working on the project so please feel free to get in contact if you want to donate any tools or have any questions.

The Walthamstow Tool library in Priory Court aims to provide, convenient, cheap, easy access to tools to help local people with community and personal projects and to make their surroundings greener, while reducing the need to buy tools.

We are always looking for donations to help stock and diversify this new resource. If you would like to donate any good condition garden related or DIY tools, register your interest in becoming involved, or simply like to know more please email tools@frpuk.org  This email is checked on a Thursday, you can also call us on 07933 710644 on a Friday afternoon between 1-4
