Organisers at the Sittingbourne Heritage Museum approached Eco Shed and asked the group to make them a notice board to use at the Sittingbourne Past event on the 17th June 2017.
Ann Sefton from the Museum said "Thanks so much from all of us at the Museum for all your hard work in making the boards. They were absolutely perfect for our displays. Keep up the good work!"
The boards will be used to display information within the museum and, as they were designed to be easily transported, the Heritage Museum plan to use the boards at future events.
The commission was a great opportunity to work with another community focused organisation, celebrating and promoting local skills and resources. As with all Eco Shed products, the boards were made using reclaimed timber. Through making the products, people with learning difficulties and/or autism developed skills in woodworking. As a social firm, the income from selling the boards supports the work of the project and provides paid employment and training for people who face disadvantage in the labour market.
