The shedders have been making lots of wooden items to sell at back to back fundraising events.

Hand-crafted items range from nesting boxes, to bird feeders, benches, planters and even toy aeroplanes.

Members meet each day of the week at their shed which is located at the Moray Waste Busters recycling facility at Waterford.

They have been stockpiling items for a coffee and soup event on Saturday, April 20 from 10am to noon at St Leonard's Church Hall.

And the following Saturday, April 27 they will have a pop up shop at the Tesco store on Nairn Road from 10am to 3pm where shoppers can snap up real bargains.

The men's shed would welcome new members who can learn skills or find a good use for existing skills.

The shed is aimed at older men, perhaps living alone, and is aimed at providing friendship and companionship, while also making items for local groups and members of the public.

The men's shed tackles social isolation.
