Occupation of Milking Shed now official

The new Essex Shed Project at Cressing Temple had an official opening on Tuesday 23rd January. This Shed has been created by refurbishing the old milking shed and aims to give local men and women the opportunity to share their skills and meet other like-minded, wood crafts people.

Councillor James Abbott and Councillor Angela Kilmartin from Braintree District Council joined more than forty other guests at the ‘Cressing Temple Community Shed’ and made short speeches focused on the benefits of Shed projects.

The Shed project at Cressing evolved from an ongoing garden project at the site, which has history going back to the 11th Century Knights Templar. Essex County Council have backed the development and the Essex Shed Network worked with the Shedders to help them to register as a Charity, put policies in place and even provided some start up funding.

Essex Shed Network at the European Woodworking Event

The Essex Shed Network will be representing themselves at the European Woodworking event on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th September, held at Cressing Temple Barns.

There will be Shedders from all over Essex on the stand throughout the weekend. They will be handing out leaflets on what the Shed project is all about, including what you can do if you join one of these community projects. You will also have the chance to sign up to our mailing list which enables us to keep you up to date on upcoming news and information.
