Can you volunteer a few hours to help establish a tool library in Forres?
Forres Tool Library promises to help folk who can’t afford to access the gear that they need, without resorting to buying cheaply made products that break down quickly, and those who find their homes cluttered with gadgets that they rarely ever use but still want on occasion.
We need a few helping hands in two main roles, temporary and ongoing:
It’s that time of year when the formal business gets done.
We will hold an in person AGM, at our centre at Bogton Road, Forres, on the 19.03.2022. The AGM will take place after our Repair Cafe. For those not attending the Cafe please note that formalities begin at 4 pm
After the AGM we will be sharing food and will take the opportunity to have a more informal catch-up.
Just a quick reminder that some things have changed since our last AGM. Our new Constitution redefines membership. Our ordinary members -those of you who live within the boundary of Moray Council Ward 8 (Forres)- may vote. Other members are warmly invited to contribute but do not have voting rights.
Any ordinary member who can’t attend can vote by proxy. If you would like us to send you a proxy notice please contact . We will email or post one out to you.

The formal part of the meeting will deal with Trustee and finance reports. We will also share updates on our projects and plans for the future and deal with the resignation and appointment of Trustees. As ever our door is wide open for anyone who wants to join the Board.
We hope the informal part of our meeting will begin at 5 pm.
Do you have broken items that you don’t want to throw away because one day you might just get around to fixing them? Did you take over an old sewing machine and you’d love to use it one da, but it just doesn’t seem to work? Is that bread maker on the blink? Coffee machine dripping, your chair wobbling or your lamp not lighting? How about that torn favourite shirt?
Come to our Repair Café! Bring your item along and while you wait enjoy a healthy homemade lunch, tea, coffee and dessert, and have a chat in our friendly community centre. We will repair your item for you for free and show you how to do it!
Saturday 21st January, 11am – 3pm, no booking needed.
Saturday 18th February, 11am – 3pm, no booking needed.
Saturday 18th March, 11am – 3pm, no booking needed.
Transition Town Forres are reaching out to the local community for support to secure the long-term future of our home on Bogton Road and develop new and existing projects to support the local community in their economic recovery and transition to a more sustainable future.
To do this, we are applying for a Community Asset Transfer to purchase the site on which our venue and community gardens reside, from Moray Council, from whom it is currently leased, on behalf of the community.
