The decision is made. After a long assessment process (see here), the Banchory Men’s Shed have settled on our premises plans within the Legion Scotland at Ramsay Road.
We are now moving forward with obtaining quotes for the work and with funding applications.
We will be looking to convert the “downstairs” Garage Bay 1 to the Workshop facility first, as this is a moderate amount of work and cost, and during this time we will continue to hold our social meetings “upstairs” in the Legion. Once funding for the “Undercroft” (as it has become known) is secure then we will continue on to complete the original plan for a downstairs social and activities area.
A big thanks are due to all who have helped us through this process. Do keep an eye on this news blog and our Facebook page to find out how things are progressing – once the building work proper is done, there will be opportunities to get stuck in to help with finishing and equipping the Workshop and Social areas, and our Men’s Shed will finally begin to resemble a … er …. Men’s Shed.
