Meet our guest blogger, Laura Qin, a passionate volunteer and dedicated member of the Boomer Shed – our community shed for people over 50. Laura keeps us updated with insider stories, project highlights, and the magic that makes the Boomer Shed a special place.
In continuation of our last Boomer Shed blog about the access ramps project for Bethesda Retirement Village, we are thrilled to announce their completion!
The ramps are made with a unique design that prioritises stability on uneven surfaces. In addition, they are measured to size so that each of the customised ramps can seamlessly fit with the door frame.
What was once considered as a burdensome step has now transformed to an effortless stroll down the gentle slope. This installation has certainly made easy for the residents at the Bethesda Village to go about their usual dailies. Most importantly our volunteers were happy to support the community.
Towards the end of the October, the Boomer Shed was temporarily closed for necessary maintenance carried out on the roof. Despite the reduced capacity, our shed members quickly got back on track once the shed reopened. With the holiday season fast approaching our talented volunteers have create a variety of inspiring wood crafts.
