Men and women in Corsham now have somewhere to meet, chat and get involved with different projects – thanks to the launch of The Brunel Shed.
The Brunel Shed has become the 300th shed to open in the country and is being held at Potley and Pockeridge Community Centre in Corsham. It is designed to be a larger version of a typical man's shed – a place where people with shared interests can socialise and spend time tinkering, repairing and making things together.
People can go along to the Shed at the community centre every Monday from 10am. The group already has several projects on the go, including restoring an old mining trolley for display outside Corsham Campus and reviving some planters in Potley and Pockeridge for GreenSquare.
It costs £5 per session to attend, to go towards the cost of using the community centre, and everyone, including both men and women are welcome.
Susan Chapman, GreenSquare’s Community Involvement Officer, said: "We are delighted that the group has agreed to undertake a project to spruce up the planters at Pockeridge and Potley. They will be clearing out the old plants and weeds and planting new low maintenance flowers in their place – it’s going to look great!
"The Shed provides a fantastic opportunity for people to get involved with different projects and to get to know others in the community at the same time and we hope lots of local residents make the most of what it has to offer."
