Take part in green woodwork activities, see the site, have a go at craft activities for all ages; raising money to build a great new barn for creative activities for the community.

Every week, The Forest Community Shed supports lonely, and vulnerable elderly residents, offering them a safe place to go and relax. You can be a part of that. The Shed, with Orchard Trust are building a great new space for communal activities.

This initiative is to supply an accessible safe space, an outside weatherproof activity area, for hand and heritage skills, primarily in green wood, creating beautiful simple things. A place to share demonstrate and practice those skills as well as use it as a social space in a green environment.

We believe that working together can significantly impact and positively change the lives of residents in this community, specifically the lonely, isolated, and vulnerable.

To make this campaign a success, we are relying on the generosity and support of donors. Contributions, no matter the amount, will directly contribute to the project.

The Shed are also offering some great rewards, for £20, £45 and £75, for hand made items and workshop experiences where you can take part in a choice of activities.
