Frome Men's Shed
The Frome Women's Shed is open on the 28th May2018
The Frome Women’s Shed is for women to make and mend things together, learn new skills, work on their own projects and use their skills for the benefit of the community.
Activities in the Frome Women’s Shed will be decided by the members.
At last! The Frome Women's Shed opens weekly on May 21, 9 am until 1pm in the Remakery, at the Welshmill Hub
Note: Stairs - no lift, Sorry.
The Welsh Mill, Park Hill Drive, From, BA11 2LE – If you’re parking, please park carefully, and respect local residents.
On Monday 21 May 2018, we had our first Women's Shed meeting in the Remakery at the `Welshmill Hub. A great attendance, with around 30 people joining.
We are OPEN on Bank Holiday Monday, so bring your projects/ideas, or come for tea and a chat , or take part in a fun art project while you work out what you really want to do!
Please note that:
DOUBLE YELLOW LINES have just been laid outside the Hub, so you won’t be able to park directly outside.
- Parking is possible early on by going about 10 yards further up the hill, and turning into the car park on the left
- Parking is available in all the side roads, as long as we don’t obstruct driveways and annoy the residents
- The Cheese and Grain car park is about 5 minutes walk along the river path.
Hope to see you on Monday!
Bring your projects and let's work out ways in which we can help each other - if necessary ! -to complete them.
The workshop has bench space and hand tools, and we will gradually have access to machine tools , as individuals get trained to use them safely.
Public projects are invited - get in touch here if your community needs benches, boxes, raised beds, signs, curtains, pictures, anything that can be made or helped with, part of our mission is to serve the wider community.
Come along and talk, plan, make, drink tea etc and make friends!
Monday morning has been chosen as it was the most popular time in surveys, but don't lose heart if you wanted evenings - we will work towards that, as we know there is a need.
