We are running 3 groups a week and a monthly repair café. We welcome your ideas and working together with our Shed Leaders, we are looking forward to seeing it evolve.........

The Shed is a fantastic community opportunity for anyone to come along, meet some friendly people, get involved in Shed projects and development, create items in the workshops, work on your own personal projects and repairs – and have lots of cups of tea and chat!!  The Shed offers a well-stocked workshop, social area, outside workspaces, our wonderful Orchard with a bee hive, and plans to develop community garden projects. For more information, please contact theshed@mayfacs.org.uk or 01435 873888.

THURSDAY (Mixed Group - all welcome) 9.30 -12.30pm

Do you have a love for gardening, or wanting to learn more about how to

grow your own produce? Or maybe you can share some top tips with our

group! Or do you just want to meet like minded people, in the beautiful

outdoors, and support our Community Garden?

Mayfacs SHED Community Garden has begun to produce its first delights after being created only a few months ago! We are looking for people to support and develop this project, by joining the Shedders in building more beds, growing more produce, and supporting our community at the same time! We also have our wonderful Orchard and bee hives you can get involved in too!

 

The Gardening group primarily meet during the Thursday session from 9.30am - 12.30pm at Mayfacs SHED just off East Street, Mayfield and is open to all. You can come as much or as little as you want, and refreshments, cakes and chats are always available!

 

Please contact us at the MAYFACS office (London House, Mayfield) or at the Shed directly on theshed@mayfacs.org.uk for more information.

 

We would welcome any donations for gardening tools in good working condition for us to use within our garden and orchard.  Please contact us if you have anything you are willing to donate. Thank you!

Location: Mayfacs Shed, Merrieweathers Farm, East Street, MAYFIELD, East Sussex, TN20 6RJ

 

Intended to help alleviate loneliness and isolation, and improve mental health, “Sheds” are safe welcoming places where Men, and Women, can meet to chat and if they wish use the facilities to make, repair, or upcycle items.

 

Equipped with a Workshop, and separate relaxation hub area, the MAYFACS Shed has been in development throughout the pandemic lockdown, and after considerable effort by a team of volunteers, a redundant farm building has been extensively renovated, and is now fully open.

 

In addition to being used by groups of Men, and Women, the Shed will host demonstrations and training in a variety of crafts and skills, with the aim of encouraging skills transfer between generations, and will effectively be run by the members themselves.

 

Activities planned so far as Woodwork, Wood-turning, Electrical/Electronics, Metalwork, Art and Crafts, IT skills, Repair shop, and Bee-keeping, with 3D-Printing, engraving, and others suggested by members to follow.

 

The establishment of the Shed has been made possible by grant funding, and generous donations of materials and finance from a wide variety of sources ranging from private individuals to multinational companies, to whom we are extremely grateful.
