We’ve achieved quite a lot in our first year and attended quite a few activities.
What we do:
Turn donated wood and discarded materials into attractive and useful products.
our first events
In May we took our products to RINGSFIELD FETE and a good time was had by all. The weather was brilliant and we met lots of friendly people who appreciated our wares. Goods were sold and orders taken – a thoroughly enjoyable day.
We were delighted to be involved in CHARTER WEEKEND at the end of June when it seemed like half of Beccles stopped to chat. We were part of the Hub outside Hungate Church – another successful day.
In June local artist, Nina Roffey invited us to join her as part of the ‘OPEN STUDIO’ weekends – she does some amazing work!
We also attended the Community and Wellbeing Event at Blyburgate Hall.
The sun shone on September 1st at WORLINGHAM FETE and we met lots of people interested in our wares and Shed activities. The lads in the picture said it was ‘hard work’!!
In October they entertained everyone at the LIBRARY CRAFT FAIR.
Although we’ve had a busy year so far, we’re not finished yet! Don’t miss the CHRISTMAS LIGHTS SWITCH ON 30th November. Our members are busy with new ideas for unique and unusual gifts. There will be some beautiful hand-carved candle holders, spoons, place mats and lots more. As well as another opportunity to amaze your friends with ‘Tom’s Puzzle’! Hope to see you there.
