Tring’s Community Gardens and Allotments Get a Signage Boost from the Repair Shed

April 24, 2024

In a heartening display of community spirit and collaboration, the Repair Shed project, a community initiative delivered by Community Action Dacorum, has partnered with Tring Town Council to enhance the visibility and accessibility of the town’s beloved allotments and community gardens. Members, known as “Shedders”, from the Repair Shed have skillfully crafted a series of signs that now guide visitors and residents to these green havens. 

The Repair Shed, a project that brings together individuals over 50 to share skills and tackle isolation through practical activities, has taken on this project with enthusiasm and dedication. The newly installed signs are not only functional but also beautifully crafted, reflecting the craftsmanship and care that the “Shedders” put into all their work. 

This initiative is part of the Repair Shed’s broader mission to engage in community enhancing projects while promoting sustainability. By using reclaimed materials and environmentally friendly practices, the signs stand as a testament to what can be achieved through community effort and environmental awareness, across all of their Shed sites, in Redbourn, Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted and Northchurch. 

Tring Town Council has expressed gratitude for the signs, noting that they not only serve a practical purpose but also enhance the aesthetic appeal of the town’s public spaces. The Council is thrilled to support a project that brings such tangible benefits to the community and aligns perfectly with their goals of promoting local sustainability initiatives. 

As the Repair Shed continues to work on projects that benefit the community and environment, they invite more members to join and share in the rewarding experience of giving back. Whether it’s woodworking, repairing, or creating, there’s a place for everyone who wants to make a difference.
