On a cold (but dry!) December evening, 14 GoodGymers made their way to the tool library in Kemptown. Once there they were greeted by a cheery Gary and approximately a hundred crates of random tools in various states of rust.
The team soon got to work sorting the various items into boxes, and slowly but surely the room was transformed from a junk shop into a workshop.
Stefania then led us in a few rounds of squats/lunges etc., and then we went off into the night - some to the pub for taskforce strategising, others to a well-earned dinner.

Tool Library | Maker Space | Repair Shop | Skill Sharing The Brighton Community Workshop Project (BCWP) is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company (CIC) established in 2019. The roots of which date back to 2017. We had our sights on renovating the old scout hut in Bevendean, alongside The Community Garden, sadly the hut was vandalised and later demolished. Our aim back then was as simple as it is today - Provide a city-based community workshop, run by volunteers and stocked with tools & work-benches, that we can all share. Like having your own garden shed, but without having your own outdoor space. Everyone is welcome to join our community. The BCW is an umbrella organisation with four cornerstone services; 1. THE TOOL LIBRARY - Stocked with tools we can borrow 2. THE MAKER SPACE - A creative space to make, build & get crafting 3. THE REPAIR HUB - Do the right thing, Fix it, don’t replace it, repair it. 4. THE SKILLS FORGE - Learn new skills & share knowledge.See more
