We have talked about the great work that the Mens Sheds movement is making on the blog a couple of time previously, on occasion we get to meet some of the shedders and see what they are working on . When we had an invite from the LADS (Littlehampton and District Sheds) telling us about their renovated premises in an old ship yard in Sussex England it sounded too good to miss. So on a chilly January morning we met up with the shedders who told us about the two sheds in their district and their project to renovate what had become a fairly run down storehouse, into a place where they can meet and work together on community projects. There is a real mix of skills here like most sheds we visit, from people who have never picked up a tool to retired craftspeople and tradesmen. If you want to learn new skills and get involved you can, but if you want a place to meet up with new mates drink plenty of tea and a chance to have a natter about things with a common interest this is a great place to start.
This is the short film we made with the LADS many thanks to them for sharing their stories as well as a great cup of tea and bagels!
