Hello Shedders

Many thanks to Jo Heath, ordinand in training at Avon Valley Churches, who not only cooked the bacon and made the drinks, but also provided the bacon and rolls as a donation.

There was more chat than work, as usual. We decided to have a stall at Frogham Fair on 25 June, so we made plans about what we can make to sell at the show: bird boxes, hedgehog houses, teapot stands, etc., and drew up a list of the timber and other supplies that will be required. This Wednesday we will make a start with producing some of these things.

We had a trial run of setting up the gazebo that we bought second-hand recently – it’s a good quality ‘Gala Tent’ structure and should be robust enough to keep us dry and/or shaded at the fair.

Barrie has kindly stepped forward as tools monitor – he will keep track of our tools, and manage them as a ‘library’ so that members can borrow things. I’m sure he would like a hand with going through all the stuff on the stage this week. Please Barrie him know if you would like to borrow anything.

That’s all for this week.
