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.

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.
at the Cheltenham Civic Awards earlier in the month, we received a Commendation for the planters that we built for the High Street, it was in recognition to the environmental contribution to the town.
In other categories we were alongside John Lewis, One Bayshill Road Apartments, 51 the Park and the Ivy Brasserie.
‘Aspire Springers’ are a Gloucestershire based ‘not for profit’ Trampoline Club
with a membership age range from Primary School children to Young Adults. Their
activities range from trampoline training to competitions. Due to changes at
the GL1 Leisure centre in Gloucester they have recently been forced to move operations to Bentham.
When they were at the Leisure centre they had access to a award presentation podiums.
Bentham does not have any podiums so Men in Sheds designed and built a
transportable set of podiums for them.
Our latest project, construction of the supporting base for the Coronation Square Christmas Tree. The Gloucestershire Fire Service placed the tree in position.
We supported the NatWest 2018 RugbyForce Weekend, this is a nationwide programme that helps grassroots rugby clubs up and down the country attract new members and become stronger and more sustainable for the future. We contributed by cleaning and painting the railings around the main pitch and providing a BBQ for the volunteers.
Following on from our successful construction of the helicopter night vision testing tent, we were asked to construct four sets of boarding steps for the Land’s End Airport to the Isles of Scilly helicopter service, the service commenced in May 2018.
Two sets of steps were constructed and safety tested and dispatched to site by Mid April 2018, with the other two sets being completed shortly after.
