Podcast #15: Benthyg – A Library of Things
Benthyg is Welsh for ‘to borrow’.
Becky explains what a ‘library of things’ is; what motivated the creation of Benthyg; how Benthyg has coalesced with other community activism in Rumney; and how it is making alliances in neighbouring districts in Cardiff.
Benthyg has recently been successful in securing £50k of landfill tax funding. However, Becky is frank and honest in how she reveals that project success can risk coming at a price to the volunteers involved.
