The foundations for the Men’s Shed Workshop have been laid!

We have been very fortunate to secure funding from a number of local funders & are very grateful for their support. Thus far the Co-op, Chalk Cliff Trust, Sussex Community Foundation, The National Lottery Community Fund, Heathfield Parish Council and Heathfield and Waldron Rotary club. As a result, we are fortunate enough to already have the necessary funds to fully equip our workshop when it is complete. In addition a number of members have donated funds to the cause which is fantastic. We have also been incredibly lucky to receive donations of tools and equipment from local individuals, all of which have, where necessary, been refurbished and will also be put to good use.
Subject to changes in the lockdown rules, it is hoped to have phase two of our project complete and fully functioning by mid-Summer and our intention is to hold a special event to mark the grand opening of this wonderful facility. This will not only enable us to showcase our fantastic workshop, but also to say thank you to the many people who have helped to get this project off the ground.
It will be particularly meaningful as this year marks the 30th Anniversary of Age Concern Heathfield and District who, during that time, have been supporting the elderly and disabled members of our community – what better way to celebrate this event than by the opening of this fantastic project.
We always guarantee a warm and friendly welcome to visitors, but, due to the location of the site, would ask that you phone and arrange to visit in advance.
If you are interested in finding out more about joining in on this exciting project, or you can offer us support in any way, or are interested in becoming a member we would love to hear from you.
