Investment project code: 90
Group Information (where you are based, number of members, normal group activities etc…): We are based in the grounds of the Dalmuir CE Centre in Duntocher Road, near Dalmuir railway station. Our group has a membership roster of 120, with around 20 attending any our four, weekly, half-day sessions. We have a social room, with darts, pool, and Internet access and a well workshop with facilities for repair and restoration of wooden and metal items. Our garden area is under construction, and will be a pleasant place to enjoy the outdoors and indulge your green fingers.
What will you use the money for?: The money is to upgrade: The kitchen area, which is, at present, very basic. The present equipment was already old when originally fitted! The garden areas, with the provision of a potting shed and plantings. Access to the loft storage, so less regularly used equipment and supplies can be removed from the workshop thereby improving the health and safety of workshop users
Who will benefit from this money?: Our shed helps our members with their mental health and well being. This means that our members partners, and families all benefit from every penny invested in Clydebank Men's Shed. We also help the community! We help, wherever possible, with builds and repairs - from benches and fences to chairs and sheds.
Proposed on behalf of: Clydebank Men's Shed - £5000
