The Yate Men’s Shed project has been given a grant of £1,785 to help develop the facilities it offers to the local community. The initiative, which encourages men and women to learn and share practical skills, now has 22 members and is hoping for more. 

The money came from the ‘One Stop Shop Carriers for Causes’ scheme. 

The Yate Men’s Shed is based at Yate Parish Hall in Station Road. It runs two practical sessions there a week, on Monday and Friday afternoons between 1.30pm and 4.30pm. 

On Saturday 6 October it will be running a stand at the Abbotswood Autumn Event at the St Nicholas Youth Centre, where people can take part in typical activities.
