Only 27 more shed days and 3 Prime Ministers to go until Christmas!

In the meantime, down in the workshop, the elves have been busy building Santa's sleigh.
Project managed by Rob Heels, it is a thing of beauty and wonder!
Does anyone know where we can get hold of (8) flying reindeer?
Membership and attendances at the shed are up and with the shed now open 3-days each week, it feels like we have achieved critical mass.
Hopefully next year, we can start one or more afternoon sessions - what do members think, would that be of interest?
But back to this year, the work on the building is mostly completed and the emphasis over the next few weeks will be on figuring out which layout and tool storage options work best.
Speaking of tools, we are now proud owners of a DEWALT SDS drill donated to CMS by the Parish Council.
And welcome to new member Geoff (with a G) Jones!
Our next community project (managed by John MacBean) will be constructing a number of pallet Xmas trees.
Volunteers step this way!
Mudeford Club Lunch (161 Stanpit, Christchurch BH23 3LY)
Our next lunch is booked for next Friday 28th October starting at the usual time of high noon.
Be there or be square!
Autumn Skittles and Fund Raiser event
Booked for Friday December 8th at the East Christchurch Social Club
Not to be missed!
Make a note in your diary - more information on this shortly.
That's all for now, see you next week down the shed!

Oh, and before I forget, best ending for the "If you go down to the shed today" rhyme goes to Les Mercer with "Today's the day the road menders get their picks nicked"
Awful, what more can I say.....
