A final progress report and photo for 2019.
The Builders are now on their Christmas break, but last week the internal fit-out continued, with the Electrician and Plumber first-fixes done, the studding complete and all ready in the New Year to start the plasterboarding and ceiling. At present, a builder’s completion date is looking like the end of January, with further work such as painting to be carried out by Shed members.
Thank you to all who have contributed in so many ways since the decision back in late 2017 to consolidate the Banchory Men’s Shed at the Legion, with organisation, fundraising, publicity, building and fit-out works of various sorts. 2020 will finally see the opening of the Banchory shed and we wait to see how the shed goes forward with the various activities discussed over the years. Great times are ahead, and we are starting to look at what we do for an official opening ceremony.
We also wish our nearest neighbours well – Stonehaven who opened their fantastic facility earlier this year, and Aboyne who are now also well on with their build.
We wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a great New Year – especially if you come along to the Shed!
