The group, which was set up in July, took to Amer­sham High Street to show­case the ben­e­fits of join­ing a ‘shed’.

One of the mem­bers, Peter Way, an ex-fur­ni­ture man­u­fac­turer from Lit­tle Chal­font, said: “It was a very good event – we took 49 items and sold 39.”

The men cre­ated a buzz around the stall as they made robin nest boxes to or­der and added perch stands upon re­quest.

They also sold bat and bug boxes and bas­kets.

The money raised will be used by the non-profit making group to fund tools, ma­te­ri­als and op­er­at­ing costs.
