Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge Mens and Ladies Shed community groups are holding an open day at Highbridge’s Morland Community Hall today (Saturday 23rd March) when visitors will get a chance to find out more about their work.

The event will run from 10am to 3pm and is open to all.

The Men‘s Shed meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9.45am and 4.45pm, while The Ladies’ Shed meets on Mondays from 9.30am to 12.30pm and will open later if numbers demand.

“Both sheds have many activities with most men choosing to work with wood and help with various projects. On Thursday afternoon a modelling group are busy building a variety of kits,” Chairman Tony Cradock told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

“Whatever the activity, the shed is a venue to meet, chat, enjoy a cuppa and have a laugh. We also arrange days out to visit places of interest. During the summer months a visit to Haynes Motor Museum proved very popular.”

“The ladies’ various projects include working with wood, table tops, mosaics, arts and crafts, quilting and reading. They are also looking for new members who enjoy a chat and a laugh, over a cuppa together with the odd day out.”

You can find more about the groups at their web page here.

“All are welcome to come along and meet us at our Open Day at Morland Hall, Pearce Drive, Highbridge, you may be pleasantly surprised. Families are welcome.”
