Brid Men in Sheds
The Tribune Trust is supporting Brid Men in Sheds to refurbish their new shed.
Bridlington has high levels of social deprivation and unemployment. Brid Men in Sheds was set up a year ago with the aim of promoting social inclusion. They want to prevent men aged 18 or over within the Bridlington area, from becoming socially excluded and to assist them to integrate into the local community. They want to provide facilities in which they can meet to undertake creative, physical or recreational activities, learn or pass on skills and knowledge and support each other socially.
Brid Men in Sheds has recently moved into its own ‘shed’ -an ex mobility shop close to the centre of Bridlington. Unfortunately to get the shed up and running and comfortable for all users a great deal of work is required. Most of the work is being undertaken by members and good steady progress is being made.
The Tribune Trust is pleased to be able to fund some of the electrical refurbishments so that members can achieve their aim of passing on skills in wood turning, carpentry and IT as well as social skills. They also aim to keep members active and fit.
The High Sheriff of the East Riding of Yorkshire, Gill Drewry, is shown presenting a cheque to Committe members and members of the Shed.
