Here are some of the things that have been going on at Sheddington over the past month:

Wooden Hall:
Painting and repair of the exterior features are nearing completion

Rear door reinforced and painted, with new lock fitted. We have a kettle and a clock!


  • Mark and Stephen have repaired the rotavator loaned to us by Paul Leonard to prepare the allotment
  • The Come and Play shed has been dismantled and the toys stored
  • We are helping to repair a vandalised on-site shed that will then be moved off-site
  • Digging over and sorting of debris, rubble and plastics in readiness for disposal

We repaired the hot water drinks machine in the kitchen and a 3kw garden shredder - kindly donated by Councillor Jim Millard - is undergoing repair.

Other News:
During our sessions at St Mark's, quite a few folks have dropped in, and interest in what we are doing is definitely growing.

The Steering Group held a business planning session with Lisa Gangliani to prioritise our plans as we prepare to become a charity limited by guarantee

Meanwhile I have had a meeting with Colin Cooper, CEO of the South West London Environment Network, and discussions with other charities at Kingston Carnival, particularly SHEDx, Transition Town Kingston and various organisations undertaking outside activities such as walking and cycling, as well as bicycle repair and arts and crafts activities.

I have also been forging stronger links with the UK Mens Sheds Association and working with them on various health and wellbeing issues related to social prescribing.
