Moreton Shedder's Town Council project for the Queen's Green Canopy

A ‘shedder’ from our Moreton Men in Sheds project has put his woodwork skills to excellent use to help the Town Council mark a special celebration.

In May this year, oak trees were planted on Blenheim Meadow in Moreton-in-Marsh as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy to celebrate the Jubilee Year.

They were planted by the winner of Moreton Town Council’s 2022 Best Allotment Competition and two schoolchildren from St David’s C of E Primary School.

Barrie from our Moreton Men in Sheds has made four fantastic stands for Moreton-in-Marsh Town Council to display the brass plaques that commemorate the tree planting for the Queen’s Jubilee. Don’t they look amazing?

Cotswold Friends has four Men in Sheds projects up and running across the North Cotswolds, in Moreton, Bourton, Northleach and our newest Shed in Campden in partnership with Campden Home Nursing.

We are always looking for new Members and Leaders for all of our sheds so please get in touch if you would like to join. Our Sheds are not just for men - everyone is very welcome!

Shed Members use and share valuable practical skills to work on both community and individual projects, but the real value of the shed is the uplifting camaraderie and peer support that the shed environment provides to those who attend. Many Shedders are experiencing bereavement, poor health or loneliness.

Our Moreton Men in Sheds project has grown significantly with a donated portacabin on the Moreton University allotment site, and is supported by Moreton Town Council.

Here’s Barrie pictured with Eilleen Viviani, Chair of Moreton Town Council. Brilliant work, Barrie!
