Our Aim

The aim of our workshop and garden project is to improve the wellbeing of our members. We seek to provide opportunity for people to work on community and personal projects together, whilst making new friends along the way.

Learning New Skills

Our workshop project is run by Jay Ingram's who is an experienced construction teacher and craftsman. Many come to learn new skills and to revive old skills. We learn a great deal from one another, but our main goal is to laugh and to be family together.

Our Progress

We have built the workshop have kitted it out with new equipment. We plan to buy more equipment in future as our group grows. Are next main goal is to improve the power supply to the workshop and to install an outdoor canopy for those that prefer to work outside. We are seeking to partner with other local groups and organisations.
