Shed Reopening

November:

November Issue of UK Shed Association "Shoulder to Shoulder" The introduction is well worth reading as it puts the current situation in perspective and looks forward to the positive effect we shedders should be trying to have.

Work on benches in main workshop and first floor is complete  and the railing for the balconey should be finished this week.

We expect the new entrance door that will allow us free choice of what days to be open to be installed on or soon after December 6th.

So from Tuesday December 14th we can open on whichever days the members prefer.  Initially probably two days out of Tuesday Wednesday Thursday,, that can be decided as soon as the rear door has actually been installed.

The new membership form has now been agreed, copies are available in the shed or can be downloaded with this link.WMIS Membership Application Form Ver 2.pdf

We need both old and new members to complete the form.

October

We have now been open two days a week since Friday October 1st.

The shed is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 1030am (or a little before) until around 4pm.

Work continues arranging the workshop and building benched, handrails etc and there is still much to do.

Discussions are ongoing to expand the range of activities on offer and to write up new documentation such as Safety Policy and Membership forms.

Draft documents have been posted on this website see WMIS Forms and Docs

At some point in next weeks the entrance door will be rebuilt (To which we will have a key) and we will be able to discuss which days and time members would prefer.

There will be an AGM soon probably in November and notice of this will be emailed to everyone we have email addresses for.  So, members or prospective members please make sure Geoff has your email.

 September.

Many thanks to all those who helped with the big move in on Wednesday and Thursday Sept 29th and 30th.

Electrical Instalation was completed by Lee Sharp of Sharp Spark Electrical (07740596032) on September 20th Click this link to view pictures and drawings..  (With a little assistance  from "an elderly apprentice" who only made one mistake.)
