On Tuesday 3rd September Community Action took a bus up to ShedFest run by the UK Men’s Sheds Association at University of Worcester Arena.

ShedFest is run specifically for shedders from all around the country to enable people to gain advice and help in running or setting up a Shed and to network with like-minded individuals. It was heartening to see how far the ‘Men’s Shed’ message is spreading.  It was also great to catch up with our friends at Bromsgrove Men in Sheds who have provided such great support and help to us.

Twelve of our members attended and everyone agreed it had been very informative. We have come back ready and eager to get Malvern Men’s Shed up and running. The timing couldn’t have been better as we signed the lease on our Shed only last week. This is at the top of Newtown Road in Malvern. The building does need work in order to get it functional for our needs and that will be our first project.

If you are interested in getting involved in this exciting project, either helping to set the place up and/or attending please phone Corinne on 01684 892381 or email
