Welcome to the Aldridge Shed Group
AGM 11am, 17th June
Aldridge Parish Church Centre
We are usually open Monday – Friday 9:30 – 4pm
Aldridge Shed, now starting its third year, is a group of crafters, both men and women, who meet regularly to design, construct and repair various items, mainly from wood but also from other materials. In the process they meet like minded enthusiasts and skills are learnt and passed on to the benefit of all. A good rapport is achieved in this way.
The group are from a variety of backgrounds and occupations. Skills also vary and some take up a new one which has interested them. There is a keen desire within the group to develop and further the skills of each in the course of the sessions.
Project work has and is being done for the community area by request and charity status has been granted very recently.
There is a minimum age of joining which is 18 years. The venue is Alrewych Court on Northgate, Aldridge. The opening hours are 9.30am to 12.30 pm and 1.00pm till 4.00pm Monday to Thursday most weeks, full days or half to suit the individual.Recently it has been decided to open on the second and the forth Saturday mornings 10:00 – 1300hrs of each month for a trial period. There is parking opposite and regular buses that come along Northgate.
Why not come along and meet us. We are a friendly bunch! Come and look round and see the equipment we have in use. There are taster sessions to see if it suits. Also regular Open days through the year. Drinks, snacks and meals are available on site.
We look forward to meeting you!
I would like to on behalf of the Shed Committee say a massive thank you to the Big Lottery Fund for there generous gift of nearly £10,000 for the purchase of equipment to enhance the Shed and the experience of all its members and for the benefit of the community. We have purchased a 3d CNC Router, pedestal drill, Thickness Planer and more. Why not come along and try them out. If you are not used to the equipment we offer training.
Look forward to hearing from you.
