Midleton Men’s Shed Weekly News 07-Mar-2019

For the past several weeks we have been working hard on the stage props for Aghada Centre Theatre Group’s upcoming show, Nanny PopPpins.  There was quite a lot of work involved, from adapting some of the props to suit the size of the stage in Aghada Community Centre to making up some of the props from scratch.  It was a challenging and a rewarding experience, and we made lots of new friends; people who are volunteering serious amounts of time to get this show ready for the end of March. We’re getting close to the end of this project now and have gained a great insight into the workings behind the scenes, and more importantly the huge effort it takes to bring a show like this to fruition.  We are all looking forward to seeing the show, and have our tickets secured already.  If you want to get, they’re available online from https://www.gr8events.ie/aghadatheatre be quick though, they’re selling like hotcakes.

Our search for a shed continues. At present we are investigating a number of possibilities both for a short-term solution, and for a permanent home.  Hopefully we will have more news to report on this in the coming weeks, but if you can offer us any assistance in this regard, please contact us using any of the methods outlined below.

We will take delivery of another delivery of Dam Easy Flood doors in the next few weeks. If your home is in danger of flooding and you don’t have the means to purchase this flood protection, we may be able to assist you.  Please contact us using any of the methods outlined below to find out if you qualify.

We are aware that not everyone uses social media and email etc, so we have purchased a ‘shed phone’.  Our ‘shed phone’ number is 083-4019739.  If you have any questions or want to contact us regarding any shed related matter, please phone and leave a message including your number or text us.  We may not always answer immediately, but we will get back to you as quickly as we can.

We are planning to commence Conversational Irish Classes for our members in the coming weeks, and we hope to be able to make this available to non-members also.  Once we have finalised the details, we will share it here, and on our website/social media etc., but if you are interested let us know, and we can include you on the list.

Another project we plan to get involved with in the next few weeks is to commence regular trips to local beaches to conduct beach clean-ups.  We plan to start with Inch Beach and see how it goes from there.  We are very thankful to Cork County Council and Clean Coasts Ballynamona for their assistance with this endeavour Our Men’s Shed group meets weekly at 11.30 on Friday mornings in the Edmond Rice Centre, and we welcome new members.
