Tools, Community and Sharing

The Newtown Tool Library is a volunteer run community tool sharing space currently run out of Newtown Community Centre. It offers tool, advise and workshops - a place of sharing skills and know-how amongst the community, empowering individuals and reducing overall waste by sharing and reusing.

The Newtown Tool Library was established in 2016 and continues to thrive in Newtown thanks to all of its members, volunteers, the Newtown Community Centre and donators of finances and tools.
