Fab time at the big shed the last couple of weeks - loads done, including a visit from ITV Meridian to do a piece for the regional news.
Watch the piece on our videos page.
We'll be in the big shed until further notice as we're itching to get it finished.
If you'd like to find out more please call Claire on 07597 349290
We love Ellington Park (we won the People's Millions at the same time!) and the incredibly dedicated volunteers who work to keep making it better and better.
They have been selected by Tesco to receive funding for a trim trail in the park - how much depends on how many votes they get. So please go into your local Tesco store and vote - they can get up to £12,000! Voting closes on 6th March.
The funds comes from the 5p bag charges - what a great way to use it!
Good Luck Ellington Park!
The Broadstairs Town Shed has a chance to win the Thanet Gazette Reader’s Heart of the Community Award. Please support us to win much needed funding and also get invaluable
coverage in the paper throughout 2016 - for our journey and fund-raising campaign towards a new, much needed second site - The Big Shed.
The Shed particularly supports older men in our community, who are susceptible to loneliness and isolation.
The Shed is a place where members can go to do woodwork and other activities in a friendly and supportive environment. It has proven to be very popular since opening after the community helped us secure £50,000 funding from the People's Millions back in 2013. Thank you for supporting us to open what we are now calling the Little Shed in Pierremont Park if you were involved with that campaign. We now need to take on a new and bigger space, which we will call Big Shed, in order to fulfill the high level of need for everything that the Shed offers, hence the Big Shed expansion project!
If you support The Shed and our aims please complete the voting form printed in the Gazette on 27th November and 4th December - then either either drop the slip in to the Shed, or send to the return address on the coupon, before 20th December.

Thank you very much if you can support us to win this Award, it will make a world of difference to all the Shedders - a chance to win much needed funding and tell the story of The Broadstairs Town Shed as it grows throughout next year.
A marvellous turnout for our first sausage sizzle!
Great to see so many shedders willing to risk Bill's cooking! (no offence Bill all done to perfection!)
Thanks to everyone who worked hard to make it such a fun afternoon, and a special thanks to Brogdales, Hazell's, Crusties, The Old Bake House and the Co-op for helping with the food and drinks.
We're so pleased to be able to share with you all two lovely films that a great, local film Production Co. - Modus Films - have made about the Shed.
They show the story of the Worldwide shed movement, why they are so important, and then our own journey to build a Shed in Broadstairs. You’ll also see some of the great things we have been doing and what our amazing volunteer Shedheads have done to make the project such a success.
We’re proud of our achievements so far and have lots of plans for the future. Space is our biggest challenge as so many people want to join, and that is a key focus for us this year.
Hope you enjoy watching them - and please feel free to share and spread the word!
We're going to be opening our doors again on 4th April, selling lovely handmade wooden items for the garden and kitchen.
All proceeds will go towards funding the Shed in 2015.
You can also pop along to the Spring Food Fair which is happening in Pierremont Park over the Easter weekend.
Hurrah! Our computer classes have started.
We're taking bookings for classes starting in April so please get in touch if you or anyone you know is interested.
