A very interesting morning at Staithes Shed. Continuing work on the car and starting a befriending hub at the Post Office van.
The mobile Post Office appears on a Monday morning not far from the Shed. It attracts older people to conduct their PO business. They chat to the driver/counter clerk. It was (at the time) dry and bright and small queues form.
A thought bubble appeared. Why don’t we put some garden chairs there for customers to sit on and maybe chat?
Brian reminded that we had 4 chairs that were decorated 18 months ago. We took them along and Brian posed. Then a mother and “sick” child came along. We chatted about the Shed and hatched a plan for her two children to come along to the Shed sometime, possibly with other friends.The Sports & Social Club (our landlords) have given permission for the carpeted changing rooms to be used for a play space at times. Part of building community and educating on our Shed in Staithes.
Take a look at the work Marie has been doing in another module of her C&G studies. Marie said, “I have finished the sampler. Here are a few stitches. Pleased with it.”
Marie ought to be! Her next project is to repair a hole in Graham’s sock.
