SHEDLOADS OF LOVE
The mission…Shed loads of love
We want to have a positive impact on the community of Merkinch through events and activities.
The Bike Shed was made by a team of volunteers with help from The Bearded Woodworker, made with mixture of reclaimed wood and copper piping which has given a really unique warm,welcoming and homely place to be. We designed it to be the most comfortable place to be so our customers feel as tho they can blether as long as their hearts content. We are serious coffee lovers and try to make it the best drink we can.
Why we do events.
Whether high profile or low key, an event and activity can bring the local community together. We offer a creative venue and the organisation to make it happen. Whatever the type of event, a community event can literally help to build community spirit.
By making the Bike Shed a place for creativity and fun, we will inevitably attract people who live outside of the Merkinch area. This is great! It confirms to people that Merkinch is a wonderful community.
We are ‘In the community, for the community’. This means we will engage with the community’s needs. Working with other local organisations and using our resources to make an impact on the issues the community face.
Whether an event is large or small, it can have a big impact on:
Community-wide awareness about local issues.
Local musicians and poets find a place to be heard.
A community for faith and purpose to grow.
Combatting loneliness by doing things together.
Creating employment and volunteer opportunities.
