Our meeting this time was unique in that it took place at the Lake Monger Community Shed premises in Gregory Street Wembley, and it was a most interesting experience for all present. Our Rotary Club has been active in the establishment of the Shed since 2013, and Max Puddey has played a very prominent role throughout. He took the floor to explain what we could see around us, and he acknowledged all the hard work and commitment that has been displayed, including by the Town of Cambridge which owns the building itself. The Shed owns the equipment and leases the premises from the Council, and over time our Club has facilitated contacts rather than having to invest its own money in the project. Max gave a thorough explanation of the situation, covering topics such as safety, progress on the building itself, the refurbishment of equipment (both purchased and donated), and the establishment of four groups so far – namely Pottery, Steel, Wood and Turning. Each group has its own special requirements, and management is considering extending the groups to include Beehives and Cooking. Safety is the primary issue which understandably attracts great emphasis, but apart from that there are also maintenance and administrative needs. The Shed is examining various relevant revenue streams to maintain cash flow, and supervisors are being trained. After the talk Max, Peter P and Shed member Kim broke us into 3 groups for a tour of the facilities. It’s very impressive indeed – well done to all involved!
