Thanks to all those involved in the quilt stands, once again a project manufactured on time 48 uprights and 48 horizontal bars. The stands where built to support a quilt exhibition, which was held 31st August – 1st September at the Woodmancote Village Hall. The exhibition raised over £3000 for Maggies Cancer Centre and the Butterfly Garden.

We have just finished the design and build of a bespoke workshop for the Gentlemen of Monkscroft Care Centre, the centre managed by The Order of St John commissioned us to manage and build a workshop that compliments the gardens. Hobbies don’t simply stop when living at the care home. They have a dedicated activities staff who work closely with the residents to create a programme of fulfilling activities and events, tailored around each resident’s requests, hobbies and interests. The programme of events and activities provide a source of fun and laughter, to help each resident live their life to the full and make new friendships.
Shed construction start.
