Kinghorn Ecology Centre brings back popular tool sale this weekend

Kinghorn Ecology Centre’s popular tool sale is back this weekend and there’s tools galore to help with all the Spring gardening and DIY jobs.

Wednesday, 28th April 2021, 10:51 am

The Tool Sale is set to take place on Sunday from 10.00am until 1.00pm but organisers have said there will be a slightly different set up this year due to Covid-19.

All the tools will be situated outdoors through the courtyard in the grassy Sanctuary area and due to the social distancing measures they are putting in place to ensure everyone’s safety, it might take a little longer for locals to get round all the items..

Locals are being invited along to Kinghorn Ecology Centre for the tool sale this weekend.

However, Lee Brown, tool shed officer, said tea, coffee and some cakes will be served to keep everyone going.

Lee said: “It’s great to be able to put our tool sale on as we couldn’t do it last year because of Covid-19. We will have a full range of tools available that have been refurbished and ready to be put back to good use.

"Even though we were closed for a lot of last year, our tool shed volunteers have taken tools home to refurbish, we’re fortunate to have such a committed group of volunteers.

All the donations from the tool sale will ensure that we can continue running this important volunteering programme at the centre.”

He added anyone wanting to attend the event to note that parking is very limited at the site.

The Tool Shed takes in all types of unwanted or unloved tools; including carpentry, workshop, gardening tools and sewing machines. These donations enable further development of the Tool Shed's operation and continued support to local charity groups.
