The New Shed

The New Shed - Opening Day

We have been working hard on a new shed on the Hexagon Centre site. We already have two sheds - a workshop and a storage shed. For some time we have been planning a new shed to use as a meeting place, somewhere to sit with others - have tea/coffee, chat whatever. Not a workshop. Some people are not interested in that sort of shed, but a place to meet up and make new friends.

As you can see from the photos the base was dug out and shuttered by shed members. The work of mixing and laying concrete was very kindly completed by the Hexagon Center.

The shed was ordered and installed in September thanks to support from the Co-Op, Waitrose and Tescos. A small team of members have been working hard on insulating, boarding and painting the interior. The "garden" area outside has also recieved a good deal of backbreaking work, and is going to look very good come the summer.

An open day is planned for Friday 20th March and the Mayor of Eastleigh will officially open the New Shed at 3.00pm. We are expecting members of the Parish Council, Wayne Irish from Hampshire County Council, Brian Cooke - the UK Men's Shed Association Ambassador, and representatives from the Co-Op, Waitrose and Tescos.

The open day is open to all - please do come along and visit.
