What sort of things do you do at the Sheds? That was the telephone question from an “enquirer” today.
I took the call in Staithes Shed annex (the wooden shed being made safe and watertight for the Gardening club to move into).
I’m standing here supporting a piece of ply being attached to a truss.
Malcolm was putting in a couple of holding screws and I was released allowing him to push on faster without me!
Earlier, a wood burning stove was delivered to be refurbished for Shedder Martin. Funny what goes on.
I’ve been under the weather which is why the frequency of posts has also gone down. But going into Littlebeck briefly on Tuesday, Whitby She Shed on Wednesday and Staithes today made me appreciate the important things – the Shedders and families. Perked me up. And I’m far from unique:-)
The wonderful model shed was retrieved from St. Mary’s up the 199 steps (we took a car up though). Betty “put it to bed” in cling film for Mk 2 next year! It was a much remarked on contribution and many of our postcards were taken by visitors.
Look at Lance’s Christmas homework. He’d seen something like this on display at Shedfest 2019. Builder’s trowel with hole and some neat shingles roofing it. He’s making the parts for a new Scout Hall gate for us to assemble (IKEA instructions?)
Finally, Sleights Youth Shed opens again tomorrow in the new school term.
Addendum about the new Scout Hall gate
Lance duly did the gate in a day! He is trusting Whitby Men’s Shed to assemble it next week. I joked about IKEA instructions. Without knowing what I’d written Lance did just that as you can see.
