Bromsgrove's Men in Sheds create comfortable benches for Stoke Prior Pupils

Harry Leach 26th May, 2019

PUPILS from Stoke Prior First School are now sitting more comfortably after Bromsgrove’s Men In Sheds made them some bespoke benches.

The retired handymen were contacted by the children who needed the seats for their Forest School cabin.

Forest School leader Eleanor Pincher said: “We are really so very pleased with our cabin benches. The Shedders were incredibly friendly and professional to work with.”

Men In Sheds is run by Age UK Bromsgrove, Redditch and Wyre Forest (BRWF) to help combat loneliness among older people.

Age UK representative Jo Hughes said this project was a great way for the community ‘give something back’ and provided the Shedders with a platform to showcase their skills.

Anyone interested in joining or supporting Men in Sheds should call Jo on 01527 568855 or pop into ‘The Shed’ on the Metal and Ores Industrial Estate, Stoke Prior, between 10am and 2pm Monday to Thursday.
