On Tuesday 17th April the Essex Shed Network held an information event for potential shedders at Potash Garden Centre in Hawkwell. There was a presentation by the Essex Shed Network Co-ordinator about what the ESN is and the work that it carries out across Essex. The meeting gave a chance for men to meet one another and find out a bit more about the future plans for the Hawkwell shed, the site and to have any of their questions answered.
The presentation was enjoyed with complementary coffee and cake and there was the opportunity for potential shedders to mingle and to find out more. Victoria from Rayleigh and Rochford Voluntary Service was present and gave a short talk on her experience of sheds and what they can bring to the men who create and take part in projects.
The day was a success as over 10 shedders signing up to help with the prepping days in the following weeks. There was the chance to have a look at the container on site and to get a feel for the type of work they could take part in. If you would like to be involved please contact Rich on 07540 724275.
