Whitley Workshop and Enterprise Workshop Lead Up
Whitley Workshop …Mens Shed…Ladies…Youngsters!
Local residents in Whitley are working with the Men’s Shed to start up a smaller satellite group in Whitley. The sessions will run at New Directions, from 2pm-4pm on the first Friday of every month, launching on Friday 1st July. The sessions are open to everyone (including women and enterprising youngsters!). People can bring along small items that need repairing or just drop in to socialise and find out more about the workshop. Best of all it’s totally FREE!!
It’s beginning to happen! A workshop for ANYONE to attend – both sexes! Any age! Please see the official poster which is now being circulated. You may find this BBC Healthy Link of Interest. Gardening is better than medication!
If not – no worries, come along and tell us! you can be set up and taught with whatever . Just gives WEW a CLUE… that’s all! (for any future planning.) You can read about enterprising Richard on the other posts.
Whitley Workshop idea of Richard WORKS! thanks to the BBC showing this documentary…A taster from the BBC about such a workshop going overboard in success.
But…he didn’t need to prove it – he just knew. Thanks to this broadcast he has now been offered initial workspace. Watch this space!
Talking of one Friday every month to start? Could be more though!

Good to see so many pop in and bring their possessions to be be fixed. They brought along anything that doesn’t work! but drew the line at the old man and the kids. (They knew it couldn’t be promised to fix them! but you never knew!) Tea, coffee and cakes available from the cafe were served. They just popped in and it was a very good atmosphere
