The Chelmsford Shed will be opening soon! We are delighted to advise that we have signed a lease on a building that will become home for the next 5 years (or more!) for local Shedders to meet, share and socialise. It is currently being refurbished.
There is mounting evidence linking loneliness to physical illness and to functional and cognitive decline. As a predictor of early death, loneliness eclipses obesity so this project could not come at a better time. Huge thanks go to officers at Chelmsford City Council for identifying abking for suitebuilding, to ECC CIF Fund and QBE Foundation who will be funding the refurbishment. We can’t pass a skip now without looitable materials!
If you’re handy with a paintbrush do sign up to our redecoration working party by calling the Volunteering Centre on 01245 250731, or if you are interested in becoming a member of the shed please complete the membership form here and we will keep you updated.
