Banchory Men’s Shed are pleased to announce that the building works for the “Phase 1” Men’s Shed premises (the workshop area) are now complete and open.
We are holding a public opening on
Saturday 2nd November 2019 at 10:00 a.m.
(to 12:00 noon) at the premises under the Banchory Legion in Ramsay Road
Phase 1 area (workshop) – Waiting for the floor paint to dry…
All are invited to come along and see the completed workshop area, view the plans for the Phase 2 building and see the model of the whole Shed premises, together with other relevant exhibits.
Share your ideas on how we can help the local community, consider making donations to help maintain the BMS. Areas of support could include donation of your old unused garden and workshop tools which the BMS will refurbish and sell on – we are considering a home collection service in the near future.
Free tea, coffee and biscuits available
This opening coincides with the Legion’s monthly Book Sale, so please come along and support that as well.
Phase 2 also now fully funded
We can also announce that the “Phase 2” (Social area) fund-raising has reached its target of £57,000, thanks to some very hard work put in. We are now obtaining final confirmatory quotes to enable us to plan the next phase of building work. This will be significantly more extensive than the Phase 1 area and we will update you as this progresses.
Whilst 2nd November is the public opening date, the Men’s Shed has of course been in operation for some time and all are welcome to our social meets every Tuesday morning at 10:30 a.m. Over the coming weeks, these will move from their previous location upstairs in the Legion to the new workshop area, which will start out in life as a mixed social/workshop space.
