Quilt Stands

Thanks to all those involved in the quilt stands, once again a project manufactured on time 48 uprights and 48 horizontal bars. The stands where built to support a quilt exhibition, which was held 31st August – 1st September at the Woodmancote Village Hall. The exhibition raised over £3000 for Maggies Cancer Centre and the Butterfly Garden.

Monkscroft Shed

We have just finished the design and build of a bespoke workshop for the Gentlemen of Monkscroft Care Centre, the centre managed by The Order of St John commissioned us to manage and build a workshop that compliments the gardens. Hobbies don’t simply stop when living at the care home. They have a dedicated activities staff who work closely with the residents to create a programme of fulfilling activities and events, tailored around each resident’s requests, hobbies and interests. The programme of events and activities provide a source of fun and laughter, to help each resident live their life to the full and make new friendships.

Shed construction start.

Civic Award – High Street Planters

at the Cheltenham Civic Awards earlier in the month, we received a Commendation for the planters that we built for the High Street, it was in recognition to the environmental contribution to the town.
In other categories we were alongside John Lewis, One Bayshill Road Apartments, 51 the Park and the Ivy Brasserie.

Aspire Springers

‘Aspire Springers’ are a Gloucestershire based ‘not for profit’ Trampoline Club
with a membership age range from Primary School children to Young Adults. Their
activities range from trampoline training to competitions. Due to changes at
the GL1 Leisure centre in Gloucester they have recently been forced to move operations to Bentham.
When they were at the Leisure centre they had access to a award presentation podiums.
Bentham does not have any podiums so Men in Sheds designed and built a
transportable set of podiums for them.
