The Men's Shed in Romsey has become such a success that they have had to build themselves an extension to their Shed ! This will be used as a social space, with the original shed being used for repair work.
There will be a grand opening of the new 'Shed' at the end of October 2019.
The ‘Repair Shed’
Romsey Men's Shed is open for business on:
the first Saturday of the month,
from 10.00a.m. - 12.00p.m.
Who doesn’t have something, which is ‘too good to throw away’, but you can’t find anyone to fix it...
Transition Town Romsey would like to take the opportunity to announce their support for a new recycling initiative in Romsey by local charity ‘Romsey Men’s Shed’ (www.romseymensshed.org.uk) .
The Men’s Shed can be found behind Company House at the main entrance to Romsey School. Members of the public are invited to bring along clean, portable items in need of those small repairs, which local tradesmen would not be interested in doing. For a donation, the members of the Men’s Shed will assess whether they are suitable for repair, and those that are, can be collected at a later date. The type of repair is limited to the skills of the volunteer repairers, but it is hoped this will widen as more repairers come on board. To begin with: small electrical items; toys; wooden items - such as small pieces of furniture; and toys will be considered alongside a tool- sharpening service.
If anyone is interested in becoming a volunteer repairer, please contact:
