Borrower's Agreement and Liability Waiver

The items in our collection are for the use of Bath Share & Repair members. Out of respect for future users, please take care of the items you borrow and report any damage to Bath Share & Repair immediately. You can do this by sending us an email to hello@shareandrepair.org.uk.

Though borrowers are responsible for damage that they have caused, we promise not to be angry. If you feel compelled to return them in better condition than when you borrowed them, that would be highly appreciated. Please return items in clean and working condition where ever possible.
