April 2016 should see the bank account soar for a day or two because of a successful funding from Conwy County Council of course the lions share of it will go straight back to Ty Hapus for the rent but we should have some money left to start up some projects.
On Friday I attended an event staged by Janet Finch-Saunders, A Celebration of Age. There I met and networked with some wonderful people and organisations dedicated to looking out for the aged in our society.
Of course we are not just about the aged:
We are an eclectic group of men and women from various backgrounds with different skills and stories to tell.
Whatever your age, interests, skills or background we have space for you in Men’s Shed Llandudno.
Ages from 18 to Methuselah
Any gender or trans-gender
Any race creed or colour
Any belief or status.
And if you do not fit into any of the above we are looking to work alongside youth groups and children accompanied by parents.
Crest Co-operative have donated some carpet tiles to keep our tootsies warm and two desks which will be converted into workbenches.
Before that as we were emptying shed one we got to keep two filing cabinets, it is getting there. Mike is going to do some more work on shed 1 this week.
Something great just happened. Conwy Citizen’s Advice have offered us a shed by there premises a:
The shed is a double garage so is roughly the same area as shed 1 at Ty Hapus.
We plan to use shed 1 as the dirty shed (gardening, woodworking etc.) and shed 2 as the clean shed (computing, electronics, social etc.)
Shed 2 is currently going through planning for change of use.
Great news we now have the key to our shed located at Ty Hapus Community Resource Centre, see the Where we are page.
Organised meetings Thursday’s 2:00 – 4:00 drop on by no commitment we don’t bite.
After months of talks and setbacks two gentlemen and one lady threw themselves into the firing line and formed a committee.
Big thanks to Emma, Mike and Norman.
Now we are up and running, stand by for more news.
