Work is being carried out on our workshop and we don’t think that there will ever be a time when improvements are not being made! The workshop will continually alter as new, or extra tools appear. We expect to have increased numbers of regular workshop users, ensuring that there is usually always something going on within.
We can offer our members the use of many power tools, including a bench mounted crosscut saw, a table longcut saw, pillar drill, and a variety of rotary saws, drills, routers, and sanders, all PAT tested to ensure their safety for use. We also have a fair selection of hand tools, which we are now increasingly starting to hang on wall-mounted tool boards around the shop.
We enjoy introducing prospective new members to our workshop, and some of our members have been surprised to find themselves enjoying carrying out tasks under our guidance that they have bought in to be completed for them! Visitors are always brought into the shop so that they can see for themselves if they can find interests within!
We do ask our visitors and users to respect our safety measures for everyone’s sake, and have safety spectacles, masks and ear defenders ready for use. We also have adequate first aid facilities and fire extinguishers are mounted ready for use at the workshop entrance.

The woodwork shop continues to develop. Rob Fielding and his team of 3 or 4 regular members are doing a wonderful job in the sourcing, collecting, and sorting any donations of tools, equipment, and wood. It goes without saying that any member will be made more than welcome. You may well come away with new skills or pass your own skills on to others. Just take yourself out there to see what’s on offer, you might be very surprised.
