Louth Men’s Shed has received a grant from Lincolnshire County Council’s Public Health Department for £9,500, which will go towards renovating the old pavilion on Charles Street Recreation Ground.

Greg Gilbert, community outreach manager for the Team Parish of Louth and the Men’s Shed chairman said: “This is fantastic news and it has come at the right time. Louth Men’s Shed will be an important facility for men to enable them to get together and talk about things that interest them over a cup of tea or coffee”.

Additionally, by renovating the pavilion, more community groups are coming together to help develop the recreation ground into a fantastic community facility.

Mr Gilbert added: “The Louth Men’s Shed would like to thank the Lincolnshire County Council for their generous grant, and also the following organisations who have also provided funding towards Louth Men’s Shed: Conoco Phillips, East Lindsey District Council, The Managed Care Network and the RAOB Aero College Lodge”.
