Ex-Forces Support North Yorkshire (EFSNY) in partnership with Harrogate based charity Claro Enterprises, have been busy over the last few months setting up a men’s woodworking Shed. The Shed hasdeveloped following a successful woodworking taster day, led by Veteran’s Woodcraft, earlier last year.
The aim of the Starbeck based Shed is to provide a place for like-minded men to come together and work on a project, learn a new skill or use an old one and get out of the house. The Shed is open to all men over 50 living in North Yorkshire.
A core group of men who regularly attend the Shed, ‘The Sawdust Lads’, are now developing plans to ensure the Shed keeps going after it is no longer funded by the Ex-Forces Support North Yorkshire project. Community First Yorkshire and Claro Enterprises are supporting them to do this.
The Sawdust Lads gather every other Wednesday from 2pm – 4pm at Claro Enterprises in Harrogate.
If you are interested in this project, please contact Ex-Forces Support on 01904 704 177 firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
