Just a quick note to than friends of the blog Steve Hames from SJH Computing and Ray Johnson from Shire Oak who helped Aldridge Shed project with donated computer hardware following their recent request for help, which I publicised here on the blog.
Cheers to both gents and to the ever-helpful Russell Smith who was an excellent go-between – such community spirit and generosity are great to see and I’m chuffed the blog readers always seem to rally around a good cause.
In the mean time, Aldridge Shed is going from strength to strength, and meets every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:30am – 12:30 and 13:00 – 16:00 at Alrewych Court on Northgate – Between Walsall Wood and Aldridge.
They recently featured on BBC Midlands Today – watch the video below.
The Shed folk also want to point out that this is a project open to men and women, and there are open days coming in March 2017 (although you can just drop in any time they’re open, of course)A message of thanks from the Shed:
Please note we are not all about men and woodwork. We are a Shed not a men’s Shed. We have a clean/craft room for sewing painting and other clean crafts such as book folding and help with computer use and Photoshop processes.
We are having open days on 7th 8th and 9th March with free refreshments. Come along and see us and see how we have progressed and see if we can help you make anything you would like to do.
We are located at Alrewych Court, 220 Northgate, Aldridge, WS9 8AF
