HI I manage a project for men over 50 called sporting chance, I am constantly looking for activities and events that I can promote or be involved in. My remit is to deliver session in the north of Sheffield, predominantly Shiregreen and Burngreave. I love the sound of what you have created here and would be interested to find out if anyone would be interested in creating one of these groups in shiregreen or Burngreave. If it is appropriate I will be more than willing to support the group in Shiregreen/Burngreave from an admin and advertisement point of view and do have some capacity to assist financially with venue and instructor costs if needed. if someone would like to pick this idea up and run with it then please get in touch and we can see what we can do. Thanks

Update for Nov 2017: Our workshop has moved...

 

The Napier Street Workshop is now open.

We've taken over an old café inside the Baptist Church (behind Waitrose) the entrance is on Napier Street. We've filled it full of donated tools, work benches and found timber.

 

Our aim is to build useful things for the community (and sometimes for ourselves). We particularly welcome older men who want to be productive,

pass on their skills and experience and work together.

 

Please see our website and get in touch if you'd like to know more:

Cheers

James

Hi James,

congratulations on the achievements since starting the thread, the shed site and your own are very interesting.

 

 

I'm probably an ideal candidate for starting up and running some type of community group shed project.

 

Currently, I'm working on a small two level property 55 sqm in total size, the aim would be to open it up later in the year for projects such as woodwork, art and crafting, it's located in the Hillsborough area.

 

I'll have to do more research on the subject in terms of sustainability, but in principle it might be a good concept and nice thing to do.
