UK Mens ShedFest

Wednesday saw the UK Mens Shed Association "ShedFest" held in Birmingham.

Bryan and Andi attended for us leaving at 6am for the 09.30 start. the meeting was chaired by Mike Venn the UK Chairman. there were alo addresses by Australian Sheds David Helmers, International Sheds John Evoy and Alistair Burt MP.

Trade stands Included Axminster Tools, Triton Tools, Metal Craft, and Zurich Insurance.

We are hoping to see a new insurance deal for all affiliated sheds in the next couple of weeks, perfect timing as ours is due next month.

There were several seminars on offer including Shed Management, Websites and Funding which was particularly interesting hosted by Jo Phillips from RVS.

overall a good day for our two representatives, despite the five and a half hours on the 300 miles of road, but they were both at the shed the next morning
