Join the borrowing revolution!

Splott Benthyg launches in new home at Railway Gardens on Wednesday 23rd November.

The pinch of the cost-of-living crisis has affected all of us & borrowing items instead of buying them new is a fantastic way to save money, save space & save the environment, by stopping unwanted items ending up in landfill.

Benthyg Cymru is Wales’ Library of Things and has one simple goal; to make borrowing as easy as popping out for a loaf of bread.

It is a place where you can:

  • Borrow things you need but don’t own
  • Donate things you own but don’t need
  • Meet people to share knowledge and skills with your community

A new Benthyg is officially launching in Splott 12-1.30pm on Wednesday 23rd November 2022, where you can borrow items such as:

  • a pressure washer
  • children’s party pack
  • sewing machine
  • air beds & many more; at a low cost.

Tracey James borrowed a food dehydrator & said:

β€œthe borrowing process was straightforward. The dehydrator was in immaculate condition & fun to use. I used apples, bananas & oranges & am looking forward to using it again.”
