Christmas Special Offer



So it’s (nearly) November, or should we call it New-vember? Because this month I have a special offer to try to encourage you to try something new! You can hire anything from the list below (even if it’s not new to you!) at any of the library sessions in November and keep it until January 10th for only £20! Which is up to a 50% discount on the usual rate!

Be aware there are some special terms and conditions for this, you must reserve your carrier to ensure I’ll have it with me when you want to collect it. Once reserved you’ve committed to paying for hire and you can’t change your mind please. You can’t swap once you’ve hired and you can’t return early either (unless by post during the week before). If your hire isn’t returned on or by Jan 10th then you’ll be charged the standard £4 hire fee for each week or part thereof until it’s returned. It’s an excellent opportunity to get something for over the festive period for much less than normal! The rest of the library will carry on as normal so you can still hire anything else from me at the normal rates!

Your choices are a mix of some very popular things but also some that are a bit more unusual!
