Malcolm and the team at the Men’s Shed have done a great job producing these huge planters for Queensferry Primary School. We hope it encourages the pupils to develop a love for gardening.
Our new classroom will shortly be ready for use. Our thanks to World of Football for donating the portakabin. Derek Clark and his team at D J Clark Decorators have done a great deal of work renovating and painting inside and out. We will now have a homely and cosy base for the project, which will last us many years.
Queensferry Men’s Shed have been meeting up each Friday in the classroom. After coffee and a biscuit, they have been tackling various jobs around the project. Last week 1 April, a group rotavated the new plot, whilst others set to in the polytunnel. This week the the team potted on some 1000 plugs and started on the hanging baskets, ready for sale in the shop. Some just came for coffee and a chat.
The Queensferry Men’s Shed held its first meeting on Friday 18 March, with eight stalwarts keen to become involved. There was talk of potato growing and deep digging, all over coffee and biscuits.
If you would like to join in, then why not come along on Friday 25 March from 10 am. There may even be hot cross buns.
Thanks to all those who attended the open meeting for Men’s Shed on 8 March at Craigie’s. Particular thanks to Lorna Russell from QCCC, who provided tea, coffee and sandwiches and to Tim Green from Age Scotland for his continued support.
The group will meet as a shed for the first time on 18 March at 10 am at Craigie’s classroom.
