Advice Fair

We were delighted to be invited as an exhibitor to the 'Over 55's Information and Advice Fair' held on Friday 19th July at The Neeld Community and Arts Centre, High Street, Chippenham, organised by Michelle Donelan MP. This gave us the opportunity to talk to the residents about what the Chippenham Men's Shed and what sheds are about. It was great to see some of the Corsham shedders visit our stand and support us.

This is what men's sheds are about!

Members of Men’s Sheds come from all walks of life – the bond that unites them is that they are men with time on their hands and would like something meaningful to do with that time. The Men’s Shed movement has now become one of the most powerful tools in addressing health and wellbeing and helping men to once again become valued and productive members of our community.

Men’s Shed back at Neeld Hall

We were delighted to be invited back as an exhibitor to the Neeld Community and Arts Centre, High Street, Chippenham, organised by Ollie Phipps Wiltshire Community engagement officer. This gave us another opportunity to talk to the residents about what the Chippenham Men's Shed and what sheds are about. It was great to see some of the our shedders visit our stand to support us.

Community Donation Awards

We would like to thank the Mayor, Councillor Desna Allen for the donation to Chippenham Men's Shed. The community donation will go towards the purchase of IT equipment to enable our members to be trained in getting set up online, create email accounts and how to be safe when using the Internet. The amount of £4,300.00 was requested for the equipment and a total of £2000 was awarded to go towards the purchase of IT equipment and computers.
