From Deirdra

Trish and I are looking forward to the reopening of the Shed.  We have now been going for almost 3 years and miss the company and support we get from all the wonderful Shed community.  This is a picture of the last project we worked on together to raise funds for the Shed.  We had lots of help from Trevor, who made sure we ‘did it right’!

Men & Women in Sheds at Loughborough Christmas Market

We had a stall at Loughborough Christmas Charity Market on Sunday 24 November. We sold items made by Men and Women in Sheds, Loughborough, a lot of them were made using reclaimed and recycled materials. We made over £400 towards the cost of keeping the Shed open.
