New Shed Faces

It’s been a joy this week to welcome some new Shedders and to integrate others who have joined this month. They also bring some new interests and skills. Ted came to the Whitby Men’s Shed out of the blue (yes the sun was shining) and turned his hand to Artexing the walls of the workshop. Old friend Lloyd lent his hand too.

Then to the She-Shed came Mandy and Shaun who revealed their skills in floral art though they tackled wood carving. 

At Staithes and Whitby the wood stores moved on towards completion, with even an outside workbench being added at Staithes in a fit of ingenuity on Tom’s part.

Finally we had the surprise news that Staithes Area Sheds had been registered with the Charity Commission in unexpectedly quick time. 

We have a visit from the judges of the NYCC Best Group Awards in early September. SAMS is one of six groups shortlisted from about 40 right across North Yorkshire. Whitby Eskmouth Scouts is shortlisted in the Best Project category for the Sleights Scout Hut project we helped with a little. 

Plus, in October, we may be in the High Sheriff’s Dragon’s Den contest organised by Two Ridings Community Foundation. They say it’s good fun.  Hmmmmm.
