During the last few months Crewe's 'Men In Sheds' have been making SUMBA a disabled access picnic table from the wood that was recycled from Brickyard Bridge 6 when we repaired the rotten timbers last year.
This week the table was delivered to Venetian Marina Tearoom at Cholmondeston Lock, where it will be used by their customers until September. It will then be moved to the Sykes Hollow 48 hr moorings & picnic site near Brickyard Bridge when further upgrades to the site will be installed. These will include an interpretation board and facilities to improve access by less able bodied boaters.
The table has been sponsored by the Inland Waterways Association's Shrewsbury & North Wales Branch who have kindly donated £100 to Crewe's 'Men In Sheds'.
