Marking Volunteering Week recently

In praise of volunteering.

Youth Justice Pop-Up Sheds. Yes, more than one now exists.

We have assembled a good collection of hand tools for Ed Horwood to have plus a cordless drill and Work-Mate. Plus, we have received a cheque for £200 to the Sheds which we will pass on with the tools. All from individuals who see the potential of hands-on engagement with young as well as old(er!).  

A true tale about Sheds in New Zealand

It comes from Shedder Roger’s connection to NZ. A doctor visited a lady at home who was finding it difficult to stand up from her armchair. His prescription was simple, “Go to the Men’s Shed and ask them to make 4 blocks to sit under the feet of the armchair.” How simple. Our Whitby Sheds would welcome little challenges like this. All part of being in community.

Finally, the Staithes car continues to evolve. 

Proving to be a very interesting job making use of many skills and involving all Shedders.

We lined the inside with black upholstery (actually gutter board over-cladding) rescued from a waste skip.

We have a dashboard and shallow windshield. fitted. Note the boot being added to the rear. Running boards and lamps/indicators to be added.

New face masks obtained for each Shed. Brian looks fetching as the masked stranger.
