The guys made another outdoor shelter to store their wood and have a covered area for working outside. They had a Xmas Fair, with live music and a lovely Christmassy feel, selling the things they had made over the last year – jewelry boxes Clocks, Xmas decorations, planters bird boxes, etc, as well as home-made non-alcoholic Ginger wine, roasted chestnuts, home baking, and a bric-a-brac stall. They made £900. They had a Xmas night out – the first night out in 2 years and thoroughly enjoyed it. They continue to help in the community by doing repairs for another local primary school and making planters for their growing area and they made a bench for Robin House children’s hospice. They are extending their growing area by making more raised beds and planters and last week them sowing the first seeds of the year to get the growing season underway.  They have started Thai Chi classes on a Thursday ( no photos yet sorry)  and are looking forward to some better weather to get some walking and fishing trips arranged.
