This weekend saw the European Woodworking show take place at Cressing Temple Barns in Essex. The Essex Shed Network hosted a stall and display at the entrance to talk to show goers about Men in Sheds.
Over the weekend Shedders from five Essex Sheds took turns in manning the stall. There was an opportunity to get to know each other and discuss the differences between their sheds but also to talk to hundreds of people about Sheds.
Visitors to the stall included people from Sheds in other parts of the UK and wider keen to know what is happening here in Essex, local people interested in getting involved and tradesmen/skilled craftsman finding out more.
Over the weekend we spoke to hundreds of people with some key contacts being made. Some quotes from the day:
“Pleased I came, I learnt lots about Sheds”
“Really impressed with the infrastructure for Sheds in Essex”
“I’m looking for somewhere I can keep my hands busy”
“We saw you here last time, great to see the project is doing so well”
