The Good News Shed is a project for people of all ages.

Basically, it’s a larger version of the typical shed you might find in the garden. But it’s so much more, too!

It is a place of skill-sharing and informal learning, of individual pursuits and community projects. Members work together on projects of their own choosing, at their own pace and in a safe, friendly and inclusive environment. It is a place of leisure where people come together to connect and work.

Skills

  • We are looking for volunteers who have a skill in woodwork and DIY activities - working on specific projecs with members, and assisting in the smooth running of the project.
  • The volunteer would work alongside the Shed members, supporting their projects, using hand tools and power tools. Thereby requiring a level of woodwork confidence and good people skills. 
  • The volunteer should enjoy being part of a community, able to develop good relationships with the members.
  • The volunteer should be able to work alongside others who may have some degree of physical or mental health difficulty.

Practical Considerations

There is on site parking.

The Hillview Good News Centre is a short walk from Lewes Road, which is a popular bus route.

Good News Shed is open every Tuesday and Friday, 10am-4pm. We are looking for volunteers who could commit one or two days a week.

The volunteer may like to arrive a bit earlier, and leave a bit later, so as to assist in setting up and closing down.
