5th Birthday

This month at our usual Sundowner, we celebrated our 5th birthday. It's hard to believe we have been going this long (it's actually nearly 7 years if you count the time before we had a home!). Ray, John and Colin acted as Chef for the evening, whilst Tony, David, Ian and Roy made sure that the wind hadn't gone off! A great evening.

Sausage Sizzle at Fidock Real Estate

Saturday 22nd April, Fidock Real Estate kindly organised a bbq and donated the funds raised to our shed. Here our Shed Boss, Ron cooked up a storm, whilst Tim Fidock tried to sell his Dad's Jag! Our thanks to Fidock Real Estate for their sponsorship and continuing support of our Shed.

Market Day March 2017

A somewhat disappointing day, mostly due to the high temperatures which appeared to keep the majority of visitors away. Only one walking pole and one bicycle sold, but we did gain a new member :-). However, some seem to have had it easier than others!

The Weather Man

For our Sundowner this month one of our clients, Ian Charlesworth from the Bureau of Meteorology, for whom we are refurbishing some Stevenson Screens, kindly offered to give us a talk on his job within the Met Office. We usually let our guest speakers talk for up to half an hour, but Ian's talk was so interesting that we extended it to an hour! Our thanks to him for donating his time and providing such an interesting talk.

Visit to the Aviation Heritage Museum, Bull Creek

Instead of our usual monthly Sundowner, this month we organised a trip to the Aviation Heritage Museum in Bull Creek. Eleven members and one guest spent a fascinating two hours looking around the aircraft and exhibits, culminating in lunch. A great morning and a chance for George to get "out and about" with his brother and catch up with Shed members.
