Sustainable borrowing project moves in to the Kymin

A POPULAR item-lending organisation has moved into the garage at the Kymin on Beach Road and is back open after a brief break.

Benthyg Penarth launched in April last year, and was previously located in Rowleys the Jewellers on Glebe Street.

The move to the Kymin comes as plans were made to refurbish the building that had been left empty for two years.

Benthyg has a selection of items that can be borrowed by members of the public.

Items available include lawnmowers, toys and pressure washers.

The items can be collected from the site or arrangements can be made to deliver whtever is ordered.

This is done via an ‘e-cargo bike’ and all deliveries are free.


The project is run by Gwyrddio Penarth Greening, a community group focused on environmental and sustainability issues, and is funded by Natural Resources Wales and the Landfill Disposals Tax Communities Scheme managed by WCVA.

Gideon Calder, Gwyrddio Penarth Greening chair said: “We’re really pleased to have found a new home for our ever-expanding library of things.

“It’s there for everyone in the community, and the Kymin is a brilliant site.”

Phil Southard, culture and community learning lanager at Vale of Glamorgan said: “It’s great to have Benthyg Penarth,the library of things project, on site at the Kymin I’m sure the project will go from strength to strength at this wonderful location.”
