Carpentry and Horticulture activities currently available at the Cowes Men’s Shed

Men’s Sheds (or Sheds) are similar to garden sheds – a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice skills and enjoy making and mending. The difference is that garden sheds and their activities are often solitary in nature while Men’s Sheds are the opposite. They’re about social connections and friendship building, sharing skills and knowledge, and of course a lot of laughter.

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

We are pleased and proud to say our volunteers received this award on 2 June 2017. The award was created by The Queen in 2002 to mark the occasion of her Golden Jubilee, recognising excellence in voluntary activities carried out by groups in the community. It is the MBE for volunteer groups.

Publication of our group’s details appeared in a special edition of The London Gazette published on 02 June (available to view online). We received a signed certificate from Her Majesty The Queen; (presented locally by the Lord Lieutenant) along with a commemorative English Crystal.

The work Storeroom does for the community was very much admired by the Independent Assessment Committee, chaired by Sir Martyn Lewis CBE.

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2017 represents a tremendous achievement for our organisation. We hope that everyone involved, and particularly our volunteers, feel immensely proud of the recognition that this Award represents.

Our patron

Fred Dinenage MBE is an English television presenter, broadcaster and author. He has had a TV career spanning more than 50 years. Fred was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2010 Birthday Honours.

We met Fred at the IW Chamber of Commerce, Business Awards for Excellence 2016 where we were awarded the Business in the Community Award. Fred was seated at the same table as us and we had the opportunity to have a good chat with him.

He was interested in Storeroom and why we had won an award; during the presentation ceremony he built some of our conversation comments into his speech and offered to be our Patron; which got a cheer from the room!

When Fred has time from his many commitments, he will pop in to see us all.
