Senior Citizens Working Group

The Senior Citizens Working Group supports inclusive social activities across a range of interests which provide older people with opportunities to engage and participate within their community whilst keeping fit and improving their digital awareness.

Coffee, Tea & IT Plus, Strictly No Falling, chair based exercise and Generation Games.

Coffee, Tea and IT Plus, is a one to one project that enables older residents to bring in their electronic devices and improve their digital awareness as they learn to send emails, shop online, get in touch with friends, take photos and anything else they wish to try. scwg wedbsite 2

Men In Sheds

 

New items 2Do you enjoy making or repairing things? Would you like to learn new skills or share your skills and knowledge with others? Do you have some spare time? Or would you just like to meet up and socialise with like minded people over a coffee? If so you are invited to come and meet us at one of our weekly sessions.

We have two fully fitted workshops suitable for most woodwork projects, we are happy to provide advice on DIY projects and provide training for new members no matter what skills or experience you have. We have members who have worked with wood related jobs for most of their adult lives and some with little or no experience.

Like most other groups we have been unable to meet up during the lockdown, our group has been busy working on projects at home and a grant from Derbyshire County Councils Covid 19 funding scheme has enabled us to carry on working. Many of our new projects are aimed at supporting wildlife and we hope to see our nesting boxes, bee & bug hotels and bat roosting boxes in use in the local community, we have also been experimenting with pyrography designs. We plan to attend local functions this summer including Grassmoor Fun Day and Hasland Gala where a full range of our hand made products will be on sale. We aim to reopen our busy workshop when Government rules permit indoor meetings and we are looking forward to welcoming new members to our group.If you want to learn new skills or share your passion for making things then come and have a chat with us. We are a very friendly bunch so feel free to come and have a look around our workshop. We are also very keen on recruiting more Ladies to our group for more info ring Rob on 01246 852467

Grassmoor & Hasland Men in Sheds meet every Tuesday & Friday from 14.00 to 17.00 in their workshop at the rear of Grassmoor Methodist Church, Chapel Road Grassmoor S42 5EJ.
