Call to donate unwanted tools to Bridgwater garden centre

First published in News

PEOPLE in Bridgwater are being invited to de-clutter their sheds and donate their old and unwanted tools to a garden centre in the area.

Monkton Elm Garden & Pet Centre near Bridgwater is running its Tools Shed programme and is reminding people to drop in their tools for the cause.

Steve Searle, manager at Monkton Heathfield, said: “We've decided to keep our Tools Shed programme running as it has been extremely popular in the past and lots of worthy causes have benefitted from it.

“The programme is run in conjunction with The Conservation Foundation.

“We collect the tools and then they are picked up by the foundation and repaired in a number of UK prisons.

“Once they have been refurbished we will call for people to put their schools or organisations forward to receive some for free.”

The garden centre is accepting most manual tools including trowels, spades, hand and garden forks, hoes, good old-fashioned garden rakes and lawn rakes, but not electric or petrol-driven tools cannot be accepted.

Would have thought Monkton Elms Garden Centre was Taunton, not Bridgwater.

Yet another clanger by the C&I. They refer to a chap as Marucs instead of Marcus and the other week confused the Market House in Ilminster with the Meeting House Arts Centre, and now they think Monkton Elm is at Bridgwater when it's not even near North Petherton! At least they got Bridgwater correct and didn't confuse it with Bridgewater near Manchester.
p.s. C&I, if you're reading this, Monkton Elm is on the outskirts on Taunton just off the A38. Check out their web site.

It's more unusual to find an article without errors - you have to wonder whether it's intentional. Maybe there's an award for the worst regional newspaper.
