Now is a good time to clear out the shed, as you can recycle and old hand tools at your local Wyevale garden centre until
9th 20th June. If you want to you can then claim a 10% discount on new hand tools, but that's not compulsory!
This is a good scheme because the donated tools are going to be reconditioned by prison inmates through the Tools Shed HM prisoner workshops, and will then be given free to schools and community groups, in a Starter Pack containing five to seven tools, at a Tool Giveaway Day – dates to be announced – at eight of Wyevale's centres in early 2017. None of those centres are local to Oxfordshire, but school and community groups can apply now if they would like to receive free tools.
Visit the Wyevale website for more details.
