“Although we tend not to take on projects for private individuals, so as not to undercut local tradespeople, we always do what we can to help other Island charities and good causes who reach out to us.”

Play Specialist Leader, Dionne Davies thanked Cowes Men’s Shed for transforming the seating and said:

“They look wonderful now with their bright glossy paint and the colours are just perfect for our outside play area! The children and families will have somewhere great to sit in the sunshine – I’m sure it will help a lot of children feel better to be able to sit outside! We can’t thank the Shed enough – they’ve done an amazing job!”

Cowes Men’s Shed is open to men and women, 10:00 – 15:00, 5 days a week. They can be contacted on 01983 209734, [email protected] or via social media.
