Grant for a new grinder for Men in Sheds

The Woodhouse Centre were very grateful to receive a Members’ Community Allocation Grant through Councillor Cameron McIntosh and were pleased to welcome Cameron along to the Centre to meet the members and see how the grant was spent.  The Men in Sheds have used it to buy a grinding tool and one of the members demonstrated it to Cameron.  The Men in Sheds have been very busy making all sorts of items from tables and bowls through to bird and hedgehog boxes and told Cameron how pleased they were to be back after lockdown.

New craft ideas

Check out some of the new craft ideas that Woodhouse members have been coming up with. Using a die cutting machine they have not only made a whole range of cards but also ear rings and some very cute ladybird planters from soft drinks and beer cans! They are also experimenting with tea bag art and have been promised end of run tea bags from Tetley and Yorkshire Tea to help.
