Building upon its success in supporting the community throughout the Covid pandemic Hands Together Ludlow has now obtained temporary premises for a 12 month period and is now actively encouraging enrolment as well as seeking more volunteers to assist with running the project.
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 is open for enrolment on Mondays and Wednesday 10 am - 3pm from 5th May and will engage in practical activities from 17th May at similar times. Because of restricted space the number pf participants will need to be limited at first but increasing numbers can become involved as more volunteers allow greater opening times.
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.
