A Local Group is a team of people who share our passion for livelihood creating tools, and get together to collect tools from their area. Many also arrange tool collections at local supermarkets, DIY stores, and garden centres.
Many also offer talks to local community groups and even speak on local radio.
Some groups sort the tools before arranging collection and some even do some refurbishment, such as grinding off rust and fixing loose handles.
To start, you need somewhere to store tools, such as a vacant garage or big shed, and the enthusiasm to gather together like-minded friends. Our local groups have a great community spirit and are a huge support for TWAM.
Anywhere within England and Wales (but not Devon or Cornwall)
You decide when you meet, collect tools, and carry out refurbishment. Most groups meet 2-3 days a week.
