How can I become a member of the Share Shed?

  1. Become a member online here.

  2. Please make a donation between £5 and £50 towards your annual membership.

  3. Bring an ID with your name and address on it the first time you visit us.

  4. Enjoy the access to all the items we have available!

Important to note:

Donations towards annual memberships are crucial for the sustainability of this great community project.

How long can I borrow an item for?

All our loans work on a weekly basis, and you can borrow items for up to five weeks at a time. Members are encouraged to return items as soon as they are finished to keep items available for circulation. A late fee will be charged for items returned past their due date.

Can I borrow more than one item at a time?

Yes! We allow up to 10 items at a time to be borrowed by a single member.

What happens if I damage an item?

At the Share Shed, we act from a place of trust. Normal wear and tear of items is inevitable, and we’ll discuss with you about any item that stops working while in your care. More details about damaged items can be found on our member waiver agreement, when you sign up.

Where do the items come from?

Our aim is to operate entirely with community donations from people downsizing, moving, or cleaning up basements, sheds, and garages. So far, the Share Shed has only purchased five items in over three years of its existence.

Can I reserve items?

Certainly! When you become a member, you’ll have your own login information that can be used to reserve items.

Alternatively, you can email us on or call us on 07516 908237 to enquire about reservations.

Do you need volunteers?

We do indeed! Click here for further information. If you’re interested and available, contact
