Benthyg Penarth is an innovative project being led by Gwyrddio Penarth Greening (GPG), a community group working to raise awareness of climate issues and look at ways that we can all live a more sustainable life. It was established in April 2021 and is currently hosted within Rowleys on Glebe Street, Penarth.
Benthyg Penarth is supported by Benthyg Cymru, a library of things network in Wales with one simple goal; to make borrowing as easy as popping out for a loaf of bread.

The successful applicant will quickly become the main point of contact for volunteers and members of the community, to raise the profile of the project and make borrowing accessible for everyone in Penarth.
