By the Community for the Community
The volunteer-run initiative was created by Alton Climate Action and Network as part of Alton Town Council’s response to Covid-19. Thanks to the generosity of Alton residents, who donated hundreds of items to share with their community, it was open four days a week, throughout the summer months, providing an eco-friendly swap shop of toys, games, books and activities to keep families busy during lockdown and the summer holidays.
The Alton Community Share will normally be open twice a month, on the second and fourth Saturday of every month, from 10am to midday at the St Lawrence Parish Centre. Anyone can borrow toys, games and activities, free of charge for up to four weeks. Items donated are quarantined to ensure there is no possibility of transmitting Covid-19 from them.
Throughout March 2021 Alton Community Share will be operating a delivery service. For a choice of 2-3 free activities, to borrow whilst Covid-19 keeps us at home, please email your request to AltonCommunityShare@hotmail.com or text 07423 162654. Their volunteers will deliver on either Saturday 13th or 27th March 2021. Remember to include your name, telephone no. and address.
