Taking Shedding to Communities

Q & A

Last updated: 5th July

Q. What is Basingstoke Shed?

A. A group of volunteers who make and mend things for the community. Good for us because it gets us out of the house/we make new friends/have a laugh while putting something back into the community

Q. What is Shed-in-a-Bus

A. A mobile Shed that will take “shedding” to communities where there is no Shed. A bit like a mobile library/mobile chip shop, it will turn up probably once a week and local people can get all the benefits that we get from our fixed Shed in Popley.

Q. When will the service start?

A. We hope to have the service running by the beginning of next year, with a couple of pilots in October/November

Q. Have you got a Bus yet?

A. No, but Stagecoach have promised us one, as soon as they retire one

Q. Where will the bus be kept?

A. We have a number of sites in mind, ranging from county council depots to commercial (paid for) storage. We have budgeted for storage, but the high level of support for the project suggests we won’t need it.

Q. What help do you need?

A. We want people in the community to help create and then run this community asset. More details are available here. If you are interested or know anyone that might be, please tell them about Shed-in-a-Bus.
