An initiative to help build friendships while sharing skills and knowledge has received a welcomed funding boost.
Wells Men's Shed has been awarded a £500 grant towards the cost of their Portakabin headquarters, located off the town's Stiffkey Road.
Dereham-based charity Community Action Norfolk (CAN) awarded the grant as part of their CAN Connect project, aimed at combatting loneliness and social isolation in communities.
Terry Kane, chairman of the Wells Men's Shed, said: "Men's Sheds are about social connections and friendship building, sharing skills and knowledge, and of course a lot of laughter.
"This award will help the group pay for the Portakabin, thereby securing our future. We are grateful to CAN for their guidance and support in our project and this has given the group a real boost."
