‘Shed supported by Hampshire County Council in recognition of the Shed’s fantastic work so far.

Five fantastic Hampshire groups have been awarded a share of over £70,000 to help each maintain and extend the activities they provide for their local communities, including many vulnerable residents who will benefit from extra help. The funding was agreed by the Leader of Hampshire County Council, Councillor Rob Humby via his Leader’s Community Grant Fund scheme.

A total of £71,650 will go to:

- New Milton Memorial Centre in the New Forest to fund a new roof helping to increase the number of people using the centre for cultural, educational and wellbeing activities (£25,000)

- New Forest Heritage Trust to fund projection and audio equipment to expand its accessible services (£1,050)

- Broadlands Group Riding for the Disabled Association, Alton, to help more people with physical and/or mental health disabilities to access 12km of public byways (£14,000)

- Crondall Village Hall, Hart district, to fund the installation of new lighting, a sound system, and a projector to create a modern accessible room for the local community (£25,000)

- Church Crookham and Fleet Men's Shed to fund materials for the group to build a second Men’s Shed for new members, offering more people the opportunity to share and learn new skills, and to help tackle social isolation and loneliness (£6,600)
