We’re very excited to announce that Moseley and Kings Heath Shed will be represented at this year’s Acocks Green Carnival on Saturday July 2nd.
We’ll be selling items made by our shedders, second-hand items and donated goodies, all at knock-down prices! We’ll also be holding a tombola with excellent chances of winning something from our lucky dip.
You’ll be able to speak to one of the shedders at the stall to find out more about the Shed and even take away a membership form if you fancy joining us.
We look forward to meeting you on the 2nd July! You’ll find us at:
Acocks Green Recreation Ground on the corner of Fox Hollies Road and Westley Road, B27 7NS.

Hi all,
Moseley & Kings Heath Shed is a reality! Come along and see it as we progress.
To give you the chance to have a look around before the official opening, Wednesday afternoons from 1pm till 4pm will be an open house session. Feel free to pop in, have a drink, see the progress, have a natter and, if you want to, ask how you could become more involved. It may be that you have ideas about your own project or activities you’d like to see in the shed, so come and talk to us about them.

When the shed is officially opened, (date to be set) we will charge an annual membership of £24 . (discretion for this can be waived in certain circumstances).

Once we’re open, there’ll be a donation box with a recommended £2 a session donation but that’s for later when we’re up and running.

In the interim you can still register as a member but your annual membership will not be charged until the shed is open.

We hope to be seeing all soon on a Wednesday very soon!
Dave, Stuart, Larry, Martin, Paul, Pete, Rob

11am General Meeting – Kings Heath House – Kings Heath Park

Work is progressing well at the shed and we are nearing a stage of opening so we thought we should hold a General meeting for you to see the transformed Shed.

There are also a couple of issues to update you on and to discuss, such as whether we charge a membership fee or an attendance fee.

We welcome your attendance at 11am on Wednesday 15th July 2015 in room K2 at Kings Heath Park House. It is downstairs so easily accessible.
We hope to see you at the meeting.
