In September the Janner Men’s Shed held their AGM.
The Janner Men’s Shed is part of the social inclusion and community engagement movement that realises the value of people working together on practical woodworking tasks. It was set up in 2017, and continues to be supported by Plymouth Community Homes and the Communities team.
During the meeting the group appointed a new Committee, and the Chair gave an account of the past year’s work, alongside new proposals about how the club should be run.
The 26 males and females were also joined by Louise Turner, Head of Property, Safety and Environmental Services to give an inspirational talk.
Louise said: “It was an absolute privilege and pleasure to meet with The Janner Men’s Shed and Ryan.
“The value that PCH adds to the group is really clear, in that their wellbeing, sense of belonging and friendships that they develop is immeasurable and invaluable, and I am so proud that we are part of it.
“I want to say how grateful and thankful I am for the work Ryan does with The Janner Men’s Shed. Having now met them all, and seeing him in action, I am really humbled and in awe of the difference you’re making in their lives.”
Ryan Huws, Communities Worker at PCH, said: “We had a very successful AGM with 26 Shedders in attendance. It was a delight to be joined by Louise Turner who gave us an inspirational talk. All the Shedders thoroughly enjoyed her anecdotes and insights”.
