Our first Shed
The workshop at Fernhill cricket ground. Loaned to us by New Milton Town Council for an initial period of 18 months.
A useful sized roller door for those 'big' jobs and a 'members' entrance.
Not much to look at yet but give us time.
Includes electricity and a water supply - perfect for tea making - and toilet facilities.
A good start with plenty of scope for the creation of an excellent 'Men's Shed'.
A year or so on and some dedicated work by New Milton 'shedders' and the place is looking like a 'proper' shed.
NM 'Shed' successfully ran a stall in the New Milton Christmas Fayre at the end of 2019. A variety of hand made Christmas decorations were offered for sale together with bird nesting boxes and 'bug' hotels. All these items were made in the shed by members.
Sometimes the shed is not big enough and work has to be undertaken outside of the workshop. The outsize 'bug hotel' on the left, in the making, is destined to be located in the New Forest to replace one that was damaged by fire.
Like all good sheds there's a place to brew a cuppa and always someone to make it.
New Milton shed members have been amazed at the generosity of the donors of tools, materials and equipment for the shed and are extremely grateful. Our sincere thanks to them
