National Men's Shed Newsletter features our local Shed's efforts!

Click on the Image below or here to open the Newsletter as a pdf, but if you don't have the resources to do this, page 19 is where our local Men's Shed in Gala gets a mention..

"Not all of us are forced to sit at home, our Shed is a double portacabin so we can maintain safe working conditions. We shut down on March 12th, then quickly realised we had the tools, we had the manpower and we could do this safely and within Government guidelines. So we did, and 1000 visors later we are still producing. We don't want to be doing this, we shouldn't have to be doing this, however if it helps to save one life then it has been worth it. Stay safe my friends - Ross Hall, Men’s Shed Galashiels" 

Some of our other local Men's Sheds have also been involved in the making and distributing of protective visors in the area, and the photograph on the page features grateful staff in a local pharmacy who received visors.
