Highcliffe Food Festival 11th and 12th June

We will have a table outside the School on both Saturday and Sunday to promote our "shed"
The workshop will be open so anyone interested can take a look and see what we are all about.
We will need members to come along and assist on the day(s)
If you can spare a couple of hours to help, please let us know which day (morning or afternoon) would suit you best.
You can reply to this email or contact Jerry on 07753 254665 / [email protected]
Mudeford Club Lunch
Our next lunch is booked for Friday 17th June at the usual time of 12.00 noon
Remember the mystery "spanner" last month that I found in the shed - well while I was sorting through our tools, I found another one!
I now know it is an electricians tool but I still haven't worked out what it is used for.
Someone must know..
Greystone's House Workshop / School Workshop
We have pretty much wound up our activities at Greystones House to focus on the School and are currently packing up the tools and equipment ready to move them into the new workshop.
Anyone planning to drop into the shed should go to the School as there is no guarantee that there will be anyone at Greystones.
Tuesday and Thursday mornings are the best times to visit.
Beware that there is still a lot to do and you may be press ganged into helping with some of the projects!
Jerry has successfully applied for funding from Talbot Village Trust and this will go a long way towards completing the next steps in our workshop build - especially the kitchen and re-wiring.
If you haven't been to the School before, the car park is accessed via the adjacent Tricuro building (to the left as you face the School and next to the doctors surgery). Drive through the car parks and you will eventually arrive at the back of the lower hall at the School. Please take care as there may be other groups using the car parks.
Pedestrian access is to the right of the building and round to the lower hall at the back.

Christchurch Community Partnership
Natalie from CCP will visit our new workshop at around 10.30 am on Tuesday 14th June to see if there is scope for co-operation between us. Although we have a different approach, we are effectively looking at similar outcomes for the community. She has promised to bring cakes (first come first served) so come along and help explain what we are about and why the "shed" is so important.
Our focus this year has been on the new workshop but members are still turning out some amazing stuff.

And I did promise a picture of the lower hall as it was when we took possession.........
