Just a quick note that the Aldridge Shed project opens its doors at Alrewych Court, Northgate to members of the community (gentlemen and ladies!) tomorrow, Friday 8th and Saturday 9th November 2019 from 10am-2pm.
You can pop in, have a brew and find out what they’re all about – they’re wonderful people.
The Aldridge Shed is a welcoming workshop and social place where members can make and repair things, chat and hang out with people for creativity, fun and just a good old chinwag.
It’s a growing and evolving group that do loads for the community and they have equipment, tools and meet most days of the week.
Sheds (they’re not just open to men – the ladies can join too!) started in Australia a couple of decades ago and provide creative activities, a social focus and space just to hang out, chat and create for older members of the society who feel they’ve got lots to give the community.
I love the idea of Sheds – I love to do mechanics and make stuff and I could see myself joining such a project at some point.
