Stuff Hub at The Shoebox.

We are thrilled to add a Stuff Hub to our thriving Shoebox Community Hub on Castle Meadow.

Stuff Hubs lend equipment, tools and much more to individuals and community groups to help them host community events and activities, maintain the local area and even improve their homes, gardens and allotments.

We have a wide range of items available from gazebos to garden games to litter pickers and much, much more!


How to borrow items:

View our range of items on the Lumi website.

Click on the item you would like to borrow and check the description to make sure it meets your needs.

Once you know you would like to borrow the item, click on the ‘Contact’ button. Please try to give as much information as you can! Include when your event will take place, where it will be, and the day and time you would like to collect the items and drop them off again.

A member of The Shoebox team will be in touch as soon as possible to let you know if the items are available and confirm the details of your loan!



The Shoebox Community Hub is thrilled to be home to a Stuff Hub supporting our local community. Our small team of staff and volunteers work very hard to make this resource available to the community.

If you would like to support us, it is very much appreciated! Donations towards our Stuff Hub help us cover the running costs, add new items for the community to use and help us keep this brilliant community resource running.

Do you have an item that you would like to donate to our Stuff Hub so that the community can make use of it? Please email us at or call us on 01603 850309.

Please contact us before dropping off a donation as we may not have space to store the item in the Stuff Hub.
