City Shed (formerly ‘Men’s Shed’)
Following feedback from interested volunteers, the decision was made to open the shed to all members of our community and rename it 'City Shed' to ensure everyone feels welcome.
Several sites for the Shed were considered, and an agreement has now been reached to utilise the Makerspace facilities to host the City Shed.
The Makerspace have provided a draft memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the two parties for consideration, to be finalised early in the New Year. The MOU provides the City Shed volunteers and community with access to the Makerspace workshop and includes access to all machinery, tools and available materials.
Initially, the City Shed will be hosted at Makerspace one day per week while the group establishes itself. City Shed will be open to all members of our community and will be known as 'The City Shed at Makerspace'.
It is anticipated to open in late March 2021.
