EDP Feature 22nd January

As The Shed reaches a critical point in its future, the project has received an award recognising its positive community work.

On Saturday, January 19, Wymondham Town Council awarded its annual Civic Award to Barry Rooks at a reception held at the Dell bowls club on Norwich Road.

Fellow volunteer Steve 
Lyne joined the founder at 
the ceremony and they 
dedicated the award to the 
team of men behind the conversion of their current headquarters at The Arc on Ayton Road.

Following the presentation hosted by mayor Tony Holden, Mr Rooks said he was feeling optimistic about securing 
the essential funding to keep 
the project running and 
that receiving the award would help with future funding 

Mr Holden said the council had unanimously agreed 
that the 2019 award should 
go to the project and that 
they hoped it would help 
make more men aware of the service.
