Alford and District Men's Shed will provide the opportunity for men (and women) in the Alford area to meet, share knowledge and ideas, learn new skills, develop a new hobby, or get involved in projects for the benefit of the community. Or just chill out, have a cup of tea and a chat with like-minded people.
The Men's Shed is situated in the site of the old Alford Academy, and consists of what was the Academy Technical Department. At present the current members are helping to refurbish the building, to ensure it complies with current building regulations, using local tradesmen to assist in the more complex or technical aspects. All costs are met through donations and grants. It is planned to be open as a fully operational "Men's Shed" by early to mid summer, when the facility will have a fully equipped wood workshop, metal workshop, reading room, a tea/coffee lounge, and a Community room available for hire & there will be full disabled access.
