Events in June 2022

Ludlow Men's Shed is taking part in two events in the coming weeks:

On June 19th there will be the Festival of the Forest taking place at Monstay Farm (opposite Vinnals Car Park).https://friends-of-mortimer-forest.org.uk/
 
With a total of 25 stalls and demonstrations including long bow making, coracles, chair making etc.  Ludlow Men's Shed stall will be focusing on green woodwork and giving people the opportunity to try working with a drawknife and shave horse (see the  picture below). The Friends of Mortimer Forest are looking to establish forest-based projects (woodwork, whittling, basket making, yoga, nature study etc)., and Ludlow Men's Shed is one of the supporting partners.

On June 26th is Richard's Castle Soap Box Derby  https://www.richardscastlesoapbox.co.uk- a hugely popular event and this year Ludlow Men's Shed is one of their sponsored charities. While the Shed hasn't made a soap box (maybe next year) they will have a stall with Splat the Rat and the Nail Challenge (how many nails can balance on one nail?)

Building upon its success in supporting the community throughout the Covid pandemic Hands Together Ludlow's project “Ludlow Men’s Shed’ is going (and growing) from strength to strength.
 
Men Sheds host similar activities to garden sheds – including woodwork, DIY and general making – but used by groups of men together as part of social activity. It’s a fact that men generally find it more difficult to build social connections than women and sometimes find it difficult to discuss personal or health issues so the Men’s Shed offers DIY opportunities as well as time and space for social interaction.

Ludlow Men’s Shed open times have now expanded and men can call in for enrolment on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 am - 3pm. Because of restricted space the number of participants is limited and more volunteers are needed to allow for greater opening times.
 
If you are interested in volunteering for this project please contact us or download an application form from  https://www.handstogetherludlow.org.uk/volunteers/apply .
 
 
The project is also in need of donations of hand tools and powered tools (preferably battery powered) -  we are happy to receive  hand tools that need repair.
 
Ludlow Men’s Shed is at 4 Lower Galdeford (next door to J Bishop Carpets) - for further information contact us via the Helpline - 01584 817 250 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
 
We have to move out of our current 'Shed' in March, so if you know of somewhere in town that might be suitable, please get in touch.

 Our vision is for a happy, hospitable, compassionate and just community which helps people help themselves, and our mission is to provide a more effective community process for achieving this vision. We do this by creating a network of volunteers which works with agencies, charitable organisations, local businesses and churches, to identify and provide relief to people in need and find community building solutions in Ludlow and the surrounding villages in South Shropshire.

 

We are funded by the community and many other groups, including:
