The UK Men’s Shed Association wants to ensure that where Shedders are following NHS Guidelines on Coronavirus and have to self-isolate, that they have a ‘Virtual Shed’ they can listen to and interact with online. The UKMSA wants to keep Shedders connected.  We are producing a weekly radio show called “Shed Happens”, that will broadcast live every Wednesday from 10am to 12:00 on Frome FM, which can be listened to online nationwide. http://frome.fm/listennow/

or Frome 96.6FM
