Brunel Shed working in new ways

16th November 2018, 9:41am | By richardrogers |

The Brunel Shed, based at Potley and Pockeridge Hall, was set up to allow men and women to come together and socialise while doing the kind of projects they may otherwise be doing in a more isolated way – a community shed.

It has proved to be a great success and they have always sought to support and reach out to the community. They have recently completed making play equipment for Corsham Regis School and as you can see from the pictures, they look fantastic and certainly loved by the children.

They have also in association with Alzheimers Support and the Corsham Health and Wellbeing Group, been pioneering a project called the Memory Shed. They work with 5 or 6 clients a week with only one partner and one carer in attendance. Special safe tools were purchased and one of their projects was making the blocks that you can see in the picture. The project has proved to be successful and a meeting was held to share their learning and experience with other sheds around Wiltshire and Somerset.

To find out more about the shed and it’s work please contact: thebrunelshed@gmail.com
