Thursday 2nd May was a very special day and it felt like the culmination of an awful lot of hard work. Our first group of a dozen shedders met for the first time and  the picture shows what a fine bunch we are.

The shedders were introduced to the shed and the way we think we will operate for the time being. We are going to run three sessions each week on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10am to 1pm and Thursday afternoon 1.30pm to 4.30pm. Each session will have up to 6 people and the shedders will be asked to sign up to attend either weekly or fortnightly. Our first session of actual woodworking will be next Thursday 9th.

The equipment is all installed but the work still goes on. The picture below shows Nick J, Nick P, Chris and Trevor working on our risk assessments. We have almost completed them and everyone using the workshop will be asked to read the document and follow the rules. We have also decided on our training programme which will be implemented for each shedder. We were very keen to explain that there is absolutely no obligation on shedders to use all of the kit.
