New Men’s Shed for Bracken Bank Keighley

14 December 2020

After over twenty years the doors of St Michael’s Church Bracken Bank Keighley are going to open again to serve the local community.¬† The first stage will be to utilise four of the rooms plus a small kitchen area for a men’s shed project.

The project is being developed by the Lion’s Den Shed CIO, which already runs the Shed in the grounds of Cliffe Castle where the activities revolve around woodwork, horticulture and Khoya Carp breeding. The Lion’s Den Shed is being supported in developing the new shed by the Parish of St John the Evangelist, Ingrow, within which St Michael’s is located as well as Community First Yorkshire’s Men’s Sheds Development Officer.

Initial ideas for activities at the Bracken Bank Shed include: bicycle maintenance, electronics and innovation and of course drinking lots of tea and coffee.

Over the next few weeks volunteers from the Lion’s Den Shed will be refurbishing the space; installing new windows, doors, boiler and decorating and equipping a bike maintenance workshop, and innovation technology centre.
