Mansfield students help create shed for Ashfield community volunteer project

Mansfield students helped to create a shed for an Ashfield community volunteer allotment project.

Vision West Nottinghamshire College bench joinery students, along with the college’s work placement team made the shed for the Ashfield Voluntary Action's allotment.

Cash for the project came from the Mansfield Building Society.

The bench joinery students devised the wooden shed in their workshop in a flat pack style with the support of tutor Reece Pridmore. Two students erected the shed on the allotment, with support from tutor Mark Porter and an external company.

“The project was months in planning and involved lots of hard work, Covid absence caused some delays,but the shed was delivered, and the recipients were over the moon.”
