Borrowing garden gadgets?

antw23uk Posts: 510 Forumite
Hi All
Does anyone know of a website where you can borrow garden gadgets?
I volunteer down a horse yard (not a charity yet) and we desperatley need a petrol strimmer. The one we have is knackered!

Any help/ ideas or advise would be much appreciated as i know how helpful everyone is on here :o

    Yes...they are called tool banks - ran as a charity. Some ask for a small deposit (refundable) but others don't

    Obviously, you'd need to check to see if there is one in your area - your local CVS may be able to help with this.
    Stopped smoking 20th October 2012 :D

    This year I will have something that resembles a garden and not a building site!
