What  is the BCWP?

We are a not for profit Community Interest Company setup in 2019 with an aim to provide a fully functional community workshop and tool library available for all members and run by volunteers - we encourage all comers, with or without experience to join our growing community. 

The workshop itself is in development - The Tool Library is open now with members borrowing tools to help them with their personal projects. 

Our ultimate goal is to have a permanent workshop with work benches, assembly areas, craft zones, power tools and storage for materials, tools and assembled items.

The Tool Library is the first step towards achieving this goal. 

Launched in 2021, we have an ever growing inventory of tools, old and new, thanks to donations and a National Lottery community award.

 

 About  Us.

 

 What  is a tool library?

 

Simply put, it’s just like a book library but with tools!

 

Borrow what you need, when you need, take them home, use them and return a week later.

We have a growing inventory - we should have what you want, but if we don’t, then send us a email, we might have and we’ll look into getting it.

In order to borrow stuff, you need to sign up - so register today and join the sharing revolution!

 Future  plans

 

We will soon be offering various classes for you to learn new skills, share your ideas and projects.

Most of our initial sessions will be cleaning and preparing donated tools for the Tool Library & Workshop - we are also working out the online systems and lending logistics.

See our News section for more information.

We are building our volunteer base, helping us to move forward and continue to grow and develop the project further.

We anticipate moving to larger premises soon - where we can provide workshop bench space.
