Poringland & District Men’s Shed has operated from 3 different temporary Sheds in it’s short history but has always strived to find a permanent home. We have now been offered a wonderful opportunity to build our very own shed in Poringland. Poringland Parish Council have included a site for a Men’s Shed as part of the Community Land project on the Norfolk Homes Ridings estate.
