Kirkleatham’s Festival of Thrift, the Dragon and Saint George

This weekend was the Festival of Thrift. It is a massive free event for visitors drawn from near and far. Whitby and Redcar Sheds worked together with Royal Voluntary Service and UK Men’s Shed Association to promote the well-being benefits of Sheds.

Take a look at some of the snaps, including Ruby the demonstration dog for the snuffle mats!

Redcar Shed was involved in imitation (wooden) guns for a movie. They were also popular items for sale!

Ready for SAMS engagement with the High Sheriff’s Dragon’s Den, we have secured support from Saint George. Alan, a new Staithes Shedder, made a fretted plaque depicting the the scene. Alan is to teach the rest of us some of his skills..
