Pickerings supporting community projects

Wickham Men’s Shed is a new community project run by Wickham Community Association and based at Wickham Community Centre. It provides men a space to socialise and undertake practical tasks, including repairs in the community garden at the community centre. 

Winchester City Council and Hampshire County Council have funded the project and have supported the Men’s Shed to expand their work and open a repair cafe. The men’s shed repair household items, including tools, small electrical items, and furniture to save them from landfill.

Pickerings Southampton Depot donated and delivered a container which will provide essential space to run the repair cafe, as well as providing space for the group to expand and invite new members to join. Well done to the whole team involved in this community project.
