Men’s Sheds are about helping the community. Not only by providing a social space for men to get together but also to support other local groups. Dereham Men’s Shed has been able to utilise its members’ skills to undertake a number of different tasks. Here are just some of them:
- Redecorating Dereham Theatre Company’s rehearsal rooms.
- Helping the Sisters of Dereham Convent to bring new life into their garden.
- Constructing compost bins for East Tuddenham Community Allotment.
- Producing a fundraising sign for Gressenhall Swan Community Pub.
- Making a number of “Stomp Rockets” for Mattishal Beaver Group.
- Creating Bird Boxes, Bug Hotels, and Hedgehog Houses for Dereham’s Elenor Fenn Garden.
- Constructing planters for Dereham Baptist Church.
