Wayland Men’s Shed Update

This is a new opportunity for men of all ages to meet other people and undertake various interesting projects such as woodworking, metalworking, crafts and hobbies, or become involved in meeting local community needs.

Our aim is to meet up for a chat, cuppa, develop new friends and learn and pass on new skills.

With this in mind, the Wayland Men’s Shed team is progressing well. A committee has now been formed and we would like to thank Richard Adams (Chairperson), Bob King (Secretary) and John Chamberlain (Treasurer) for taking on these crucial roles. We are currently in discussions about options for premises and will be looking to apply for funding to get the Shed up and running over the coming months. The group is now keen to attract new members who can help with this planning stage and to build on the great start that this vibrant, welcoming group has made to support the Shed once it is up and running. They will be having a stall in the Health & Wellbeing marquee at the Wayland Show so come along and chat to some of the guys who will be there.

If you would be interested in attending the next meeting of the group to help get this much needed project off the ground we meet on the first Wednesday of each month, with the next meeting on Wednesday 3rd August, 11am, at St Mary’s Church Rooms, Watton. All welcome!
