Dumfries Men’s Shed is proud to announce that they have been shortlisted as one of the five finalists in the Scottish Men’s Shed of the Year 2021. The Dumfries Men’s Shed need our votes to help to make them the Scottish Men Shed of the Year for 2021.
Brian Kerr, Secretary of Dumfries Men`s Shed said: It is an honour, and a huge achievement for our Shed and the community as a whole to be shortlisted for this award as a recognition of what has been achieved over the last year. After successfully obtaining our new much larger premises in November through the Community Asset Transfer process, we completed the move from our old Shed during the pandemic navigating through lockdown. “Since then, we have carried out repairs to the building; decorated downstairs; set up our workshop, games rooms, kitchen and our main dining/social room. We have also recently received funding from the National Lottery Community Fund to purchase computers and printers to set up a new computer suite so our members can learn basic computer literacy and internet training to ensure we always stay connected. It has been an extremely busy and eventful year and I hope we will continue to grow and be able to help more people in Dumfries as we continue to add and improve our facilities.”
