Give it a rest! - Burnham & Highbridge Men's Shed help the Friends restore benches across the hospital grounds

June 23, 2018

In an attempt to improve the facilities at the hospital we recognised that many of the benches placed around the grounds for both patient and visitors use were becoming dilapidated.

 

We approached the Men's Shed www.burnham-mens-shed.club and asked them if they would be happy to take on the project.  To our delight they agreed and the first bench was removed from outside the Outpatients/MIU entrance.  A new arm was made and fitted as well as replacing the rotted parts of the legs.  The plaques were cleaned and the whole unit stained prior to its return.

 

Over time different seats will disappear from the grounds to be refurbished and returned.

We are very grateful for the help offered to us by the Men's Shed.
