Following the unanimous decision of the Council at its January meeting, Barry Rooks has been awarded the Civic Award 2019 for his work with The Shed on Ayton Road.

The Shed is a place for men to go to form friendships and learn new skills while sharing the skills they already have with others. In The Shed you will find amongst other things a well equipped wood working shop complete with lathe, a media room with Computers and a warm welcome from some of the friendliest men around. Mayor Tony Holden said "With the suicide rate among men being around 4 times that of women, projects like The Shed are hugely important to our community. I am very pleased that the Council has recognized the hard work that Barry and his team have put into helping the men of Wymondham.
