The Men’s Shed in Letterkenny, located behind St. Conal’s Hospital, will open it’s doors to the public this weekend to showcase the work.
The event will take place on Saturday October 15th from 10.30am to 1pm. There will be some up-cycling demonstrations using pallets and other materials.
The month of October has been designated as National Reuse month and Donegal County
Council and the Letterkenny Men’s Shed will be coming together to demonstrate to reuse waste.
Suzanne Bogan, Waste Awareness Officer with Donegal County Council, said: “Donating, refurbishing and repairing items are all forms of reuse and offer people a chance to save or make money, get creative, learn a new skill and be environmentally conscious. This is the first year of National Reuse Month and in the future Donegal County Council hopes to link with other Men’s Sheds in the Northwest to host similar open days next year”.
The day will also be an opportunity to promote the Sheds activities with other agencies, to
attract new members, to promote themselves within the business community, voluntary
community and with the general public.
Everyone is encouraged to come along and see what we can Repair - Remake - Re-imagine
with waste materials on Saturday 15th October from 10.30am - 1pm.
There will be a number of guest speakers including Cllr Terence Slowey, Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, John Roe from Letterkenny Men’s Shed, a speaker from Letterkenny Tidy Towns, Letterkenny Community Development Partnership and the National Learning Network.
