Durlston’s new Shed offers volunteering and socialising opportunities

Dorset Council News Feed - Wed, 07/17/2019 - 15:54

A new project at the Dorset Council run Durlston Country Park in Swanage is giving everyone the chance to share skills, make friends and come together through volunteering.

The Everyone Needs a Shed! project, offers a relaxed style of working and socialising, with gentle tasks like gardening, bird box making, green woodworking and more. Volunteers can come and go and the shed is open to all, including people with disabilities or long term health conditions, such as dementia.

The Shed is part of the Durlston Pleasure Grounds Project, which is working to enhance the Victorian landscape at Durlston for people and wildlife. It is supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.

Ali Tuckey, Project Leader for the Durlston Pleasure Grounds Project, explained: “This is such a great way to help look after this fantastic place, with no commitment or experience needed – just come along and we’ll put you to work, or just pop in for a cuppa and a chat.”

Cllr Ray Bryan, Dorset Council’s Portfolio Holder for Highways, Travel and Environment, said: “The Shed is not only located in a beautiful setting, but it also offers a brilliant way for people to share or learn new skills, meet like-minded people, take gentle exercise and be a part of the wider community of volunteers.”

The shed is open on Mondays between 10:00am-1:00pm, Wednesdays between 1:00pm-4:00pm and most Saturday mornings.

To find out more, visit www.durlston.co.uk or pop in for a chat.
