The Shed continues. We regularly meet on Wednesdays at 10am on land next to Lowestoft Station carpark.

For many years, the piece of land was a siding and cattle dock for the railway. We've found eleven posts. They are very robust – huge steel bars (possibly rail track) embedded in concrete. We have tried many ways of chopping the concrete off. We have failed. Up until now.

Our Shed now has (limited) electric power.

On Wednesday 28th Feb the Solar Panels were connected to all the gubbins that makes their power useable, and we switched on a light.

Next step is to wire up the Shed interior.

The advent of power would not have been possible without a generous grant from the Enabling Communities Budget of East Suffolk Council, so a BIG THANK YOU to local Councillors Keith Patience, Janet Craig and Tess Gandy.

The patio mesh pic

North Lowestoft Men's Shed (aka NLMS) continues to consolidate its base. In this case, building a patio.

Using gravel-mesh as the patio base our next step is to spread gravel over it all. This will create a solid and secure surface on which to put our donated garden and chair set to catch the last of the summer sun.

We've also been donated high-quality kitchen cupboards by Lowestoft Tile Company in Wilde Street. A piece of work-surface has been attached to a metal table frame found abandoned in the High Street to create a work table.

We have a flag, too.

There's one foodbank in the area, but they have several outlets  where you can get food. They usually operate a 'referral' scheme – a professional or established agency gives you a voucher of some kind which you take to the appropriate organisation. But Covid-times mean you need to check.

“We are currently awaiting further guidance on the new Covid-19 business grants announced by the Government yesterday and will update our website as soon as we have more information. The key thing that businesses can do at this stage is to apply for the Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG), which has been available since the lockdown in November, if they haven’t already. The online form and full details about how to apply with full eligibility criteria can be found below:
