Saturday 2nd November 2019, the official opening of the Banchory Men’s Shed. After much work over several years by a lot of people, we finally got there, with the opening of the Phase 1 Workshop section.
Firstly, many thanks to all those who have input to the fruition of the Banchory Men’s Shed – the Board of Trustees all the way from from 2015, all the members – present and those sadly passed – the Banchory Legion Scotland, all the donors and supporters from all walks of life, the Scottish Men’s Shed Association, and Bruce McCombie Builders.
Following our opening day, and with the Phase 1 area organised into a combined social area and workshop (until Phase 2 is complete), we held our first social in our new premises on the following Tuesday, with an already increased turn-out.
Here are a few photos of this momentous occasion!
We are hoping to hear imminently about the commencement of the Phase 2 build (see here for how the phasing works) and will update you as soon as things are confirmed.
