Community Shed

The Leyburn & District Community Shed

The most exciting community development to take place in the area for years. This new environmentally friendly building will provide a large workshop area with essential tools and equipment and space to learn and engage in a range of arts and crafts and educational activities. Membership will be as inclusive as possible; people will be encouraged to develop new skills via interactive skills and educational sessions. An important part of the project will be a social space with internet access, copying and printing facilities and a technical library. The shed is to be located adjacent to the Centre with appropriate access and car parking available. In the start-up phase the organisers are looking for people with a variety of skills to help develop the building and facilities. For more information call us on 01969 624510 or email admin@leyburnartscentre.com.

Mr Mike Ramsay, Master of Thornborough Lodge and Mr Dinsdale, Charity Steward of the Leyburn branch of the Freemasons came to Leyburn Arts & Community Centre to present a cheque for £500 towards the costs of the new Leyburn Community Shed. This is now in situ, waiting for the weather to improve so that further internal and external work can be completed. Julian Pinches, manager and leader of the development team said “we are most grateful and appreciative of this donation from the Freemasons to help provide a flexible working environment for a wide range of activities for the people of Wensleydale. We are looking forward to its opening later this year." The Shed will have woodworking facilities amongst other equipment and will be open to all ages.
