Co-Op spread the Shed
Thanks to Scotmid Balerno for offering us a space to promote our wee Shed. We were very busy with lots of folk asking for their Dad or Granddad as well as ladies looking, and this is a direct quote, “to get my husband out the house” lol. The three Ali’s were all involved as well as Jack and Iain and it was great to be the face of our Shed. Hope we get new members out of it. A lady said she would love to buy stuff and we should sell at the Farmers Market!. We may indeed try that in December but depends on what we have and how many interested. Also maybe no room at the market!
Anyway, it was a good way to meet some new friends today.Continue reading “Co-Op spread the Shed”
Thanks to Iain and Ian, 18 or so shedders had a fantastic pre Christmas lunch at Riccarton Inn. Great conversation, great food, and a lovely time was had by all. It was a lunch filled with good conversation a lot of leg pulling, terrible jokes, and catching up.
This is what the Men’s shed is all about ,we are not just making things or repairing tools but engaged in mental health companionship and FUN .Continue reading “Shed Lunch”
Great turnout today and thanks to Iain, Ali and John for their organisational skills. We certainly had some good debate around topics such as membership, activities, lady members and day trips as well as an update on Stewart’s finger, his shed blackout ,and other “incidents”. Thankfully his exploits have been appropriately rewarded!
It was very nice to see that we continue to attract new members even though we are still in Covid territory! We have a lot of good people who have some extremely interesting ideas so upwards and onwards.Continue reading “AGM”
Thanks to the Shedders that supported my wee Jubilee party at the hall hope you all enjoyed yourselves.
We had a nice change of pace today when rather than us splitting into work parties or working on projects we sat in the hall and had a lovely chat. It’s great to remember we don’t always have to “do” but can simply sit around a virtual camp fire and set the world to rights. I know that John, Bill and I enjoyed today and trust we all did.
We love buses. Come to the shed and build your own!
(Disclaimer – we didn’t build this one – but we probably could build something very similar!)
