Frome Men's Shed
The Frome Shed undertakes repairs for people in the Community, as long as this does not compete with a local Business !
The Frome Shed does not charge commissioners for work – We request donations (Over and above agreed materials costs). These donations may be a small as £2, more usually £5-£20, but may be more – The level of the donation is left completely to the Commissioners discretion.
The Frome Shed will only very rarely choose to undertake a project on any kind of strict timescale – Only if the member Shedder personally agree to commit to a timescale would we accept a project on a strict timescale.
Examples of the work we undertake for people in the Community include:-
Re-rushing or re-caning chairs and stools
Fixing wobbly (or replacing) legs and arms for chairs or tables
Re-furbishing spinning wheels, pumps, tools, rocking chair, kneeler
Refurbishment of a Victorian mirror stand, windows, a Victorian writing slope (including French Polishing), Easels, Garden benches, a Document Shredder, Angel wings, Mirror and picture frames, Pushchair and Cake stand
Sharpening chisels, secateurs, axes etc
Where items cannot be repaired, we sometimes fabricate from scratch - For example a Child's Deckchair, odd pieces for Looms, and other bespoke wooden items.
