** Renovations are ongoing within Government guidelines and we look forward to the Grand Opening on 3rd July **
MAYFACS SHED Grand Opening Fete
Saturday 3rd July 10.30 - 3pm
We are really chuffed at how far the shed is progressing and we are indebted to all the wonderful volunteers who are doing the renovations.
Spearheading this project is Ian Bruce. His enthusiasm and commitment is amazing! We are really pleased to say he has now joined the MAYFACS team with the fancy title “MAYFACS Shed Development Lead”. Ian’s role will be to finish coordinating the renovations and then get the shed up and running when Covid rules allow us to open. Watch this space for more news.......
For those of you that don't know ..... The MAYFACS Shed now has a new home, Merrieweathers Farm in East Street. Volunteers have been, and still are, busy renovating and equipping the disused farm building to form "our Mayfacs Shed".
For regular updates - please take a look at the Mayfacs SHED facebook page.

Sheds are about meeting like-minded people and having someone to share your worries with. They are about having fun, sharing skills and knowledge, and gaining a renewed sense of purpose and belonging. As a by-product of all of that they reduce isolation and feelings of loneliness, they allow men (and women) to deal with mental health challenges more easily and remain independent, they rebuild communities and in many cases, they save lives. They are community spaces to connect, converse and create, but most importantly, they’re fun!
Please don't forget to sign up for the Coop card - MAYFACS is one of the Coop’s local good causes from now until 23 October 2021! Specifically, the money raised is to go towards our new venture, the Mayfacs Shed.
This is how the shed and surroundings look now, it has lots of potential but needs a bit of work to get it functioning.
Work in progress..........
From these humble beginnings ....... we will be unveiling the progress at our Grand Opening Fete on 3rd July (more photos to follow).
