We are thrilled to announce that The Winterton 2022 Big Local Network Trust has awarded the Winterton Men in Sheds project £4,600 to fund premises. However we need your help!
Do you know of any suitable premises in Winterton where men can get together regularly to make things for themselves and the community? We are looking for a venue where carpentry equipment can be set up permanently so that men can work side by side, have a cuppa and share a bit of banter. The 'shed' will help to combat loneliness in men from rural areas, improve health and wellbeing and allow 'shedders' to plan other activities that benefit themselves and the wider community.
Currently a group of between 6 to 11 men meet regularly at the Sir John Mason Community Hub, DeLacey Way, Winterton to develop the project with Jacky Birkett, project co-ordinator. The group is open to men from Winterton and surrounding villages so if you want to get involved, or know someone who would benefit from getting involved, just get in touch.
If you would like to support the project in other ways, such as helping us to find suitable premises, donating tools, equipment or materials, or sponsoring the project, we would love to hear from you.
Contact Jacky on 07515269867 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The group is also on Facebook@wintertonmensshed
