This, That and the Other (including first Cuckoo of Spring)

Sheds can make not only a difference to the Shedders who come but also spouses/partners and it spreads into the wider community too. Sheds are not the only instruments for that of course and at the bottom you will find a greeting that Paul Blakey MBE (founder of Street Angels) sent to  Street Angels Whitby.

The photograph is the first cuckoo of Spring, Or rather our first C2C walker who entered SAMS Shed yesterday. He lives in Leyburn in the Yorkshire Dales. The local community there are looking at the possibility of  a Men’s Shed for their village !!! Early bird Shedder Bob met him before most Shedders were out of their beds:-)
