January - March 2020

Our "Shed" workshop was in full swing and busier then ever with members either helping on group projects like making a new "Bug Hotel" for the Friends of Ballard Water Meadow to replace one that vandals has set on fire or working on their own projects. 

February 2020

From the start New Milton's Men's Shed has received outstanding support from Hampshire County Council with help in setting things up  especially with funding towards our permanent "Shed".  "Shed" members were therefore delighted to 

welcome members of the HCC to their "Shed" to show them the progress made in kitting out the shed and some f the work completed and in progress for the local community.

Covid-19 Lockdown

With the lockdown all activities were suspended at the "Shed" and also our Friday Social gatherings had to stop as well. This didn't stop our "Shedders" from continuing to work on projects in the own sheds or garages and from a Social side we maintained contact with those that wanted to join "Zoom" calls on Friday lunchtime and Wednesday Evenings.  We also published a weekly "Pub Quiz" on the web site

Social Activities & Trips

Due to Covid-19 Restrictions all Planned trips were cancelled

Community & Shed Projects

January 2020

The Little Orchard Care Home had asked us if we would put up a Sensory Pergola for their residents

February 2020

The Club at Fawsett's Field (which is the home of our regular Friday Social meetings)  was in need of a 'lick of paint' to keep the place looking good.

Members enthusiastically  responded. A small gesture from our "Shedders" to New Milton Football Club as a means of thanking them for their welcoming hospitality every Friday.

February 2020

Sometimes the shed is not big enough and work has to be undertaken outside of the workshop. The outsize 'bug hotel' being made, is destined to be located in the Ballard Lake Water Meadow to replace one that was damaged by vandals.

February 2020

Just 3 weeks before the virus lockdown, Arnewood School kindly allowed us to use their woodwork studio for one evening a week, for some of the many projects that we had lined up

December 2020

Shedders contributed to the Milford on Sea Village Green Christmas display, by cutting out these figures of Mary and Joseph for the Nativity Scene
