Men in Sheds look to build on a great start
Group is celebrating after raising almost £250 with first street stall
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.
The group can be found at Mares Community Farm at Old Amersham Farm, Old Amersham, and meets each Monday from 1pm to 3pm.
