Men’s Shed at Work in Yate Parish Hall

Although we have a fitted workshop, many members setup and work in the adjacent Parish Hall. No problem in getting takers for tea & biscuits.

We have attended a few local fetes. It gives us exposure to the community whilst allowing us to entertain and engage all age groups.

YMS held a Macmillan Coffee afternoon which was very popular and supported by Yate Town Council members and staff. The feedback was very reassuring from members and visitors alike. When all contributions were counted we made a contribution to  Macmillan of £450

All are looking forward to hosting another event in 2019.

All events give members the opportunity to show others our interests and achievements. New members add new interests and skills to the group.
