Letter to the Sussex Express.  26/04/24


Dear Sir

Lewes Men's Shed is part of an international movement to address male social isolation and is a community-based initiative offering practical activities, projects and fellowship. Initiated with support from Foundry Healthcare, in the past year it has grown in numbers, to about 20, gained charitable status and opens on two days a week. It currently operates in very suitable accommodation in one of the buildings on the North Street development site, generously offered free of charge for a year by Human Nature. Woodworking and gardening projects have dominated our first year, but we are open to suggestions for other activities.

In September, along with others occupying sites along the river, we have received notice to quit as preparations for demolition are made. Currently we have not identified an alternative location in or very close to Lewes. An accessible workshop area and space for social interaction are the minimum requirements.

We are writing now in the hope that a reader may be able to help us identify a suitable location, so that this valuable provision can continue. Why not come and meet us on a Wednesday (noon to 3pm) at the Riverside Centre at the far end of North Street?

Yours hopefully,


Robin Rudwick & Marcus Taylor
