Permanent premises

The application for a Community Asset Transfer has been successful and we now have permanent premises at Unit 19, Harlaw Way, Inverurie AB51 4SG. The building has now been converted into a workshop to house woodworking and metalworking equipment and also includes a clean room and craft area.

Community Projects

We have undertaken a number of projects and these include the construction of a Friendship Bench for Meldrum Academy, a wooden bench for Strathburn School, construction of a cold frame and the refurbishment of potting benches for St Andrews School and the construction of a fence at Port Elphinstone Community House garden. In addition, a sectional shed was built to house a trike for a disabled local girl and erected in her garden.

Garden Bench

A recent project undertaken by one of our shedders, a beautifully restored garden bench. This is a fine example of the sort of project we undertake in the Mens Shed. We have the capability to have a go at any project from gardening to woodwork or simple metalwork projects.

Polytunnel

Inverurie and District Men's Shed has purchased and erected a polytunnel in the Community Space at Harlaw Day Centre. This is the first Men's Shed polytunnel in Aberdeenshire. Members are busy growing a wide range of vegetables, flowers etc. Jim McColl of BBC TV Beechgrove Garden fame opened the polytunnel. The money to purchase the tunnel was obtained from a generous grant from the Aberdeenshire Health Improvement Fund. Travis Perkins and Breedon Aggregates provided materials.
