Freemasons donate to community shed project

Local Freemasons have made a donations towards the community shed project at Leyburn Arts and Community Centre.

Mike Ramsay, master of Thornborough Lodge in Leyburn, and Mr Dinsdale, charity steward of the branch, visited Leyburn Arts and Community Centre to present a cheque for £500 towards the costs of the new scheme.

The shed is now in situ, waiting for the weather to improve so that further internal and external work can be completed.

Julian Pinches, manager and leader of the development team, said: “We are most grateful and appreciative of this donation from the Freemasons to help provide a flexible working environment for a wide range of activities for the people of Wensleydale.

“We are looking forward to its opening later this year.”

The shed will have woodworking facilities, as well as other equipment, and will be open to all ages.
