Mem's Shed Pictures 2016
Douglas Cowie Carries the Torch
Shedders were enthralled by stories of countries visited and characters met, famous and not so, by former Scotland Marathon runner Douglas Cowie from Forres as he accompanied the Olympic Torch from Australia to Athens. Although he said he would never repeat such a run, he was soon escorting the flame again at the Rio Pan American Games.
Marsali Campbell's African Mission
Marsali Campbell, a nurse from Portree, has been practicing for the last 15 years in Uganda where she helps to turn around the lives of vulnerable street children. As a missionary, she helps street children, many of which suffer hunger, disease, injury or abuse and Shed Members were absorbed by her sad yet inspirational story.
Men's Shed at #CanalMagic Event
Inverness Men's Shed took part in the #CanalMagic programme of events, organised by Scottish Canals which asked cyclists, runners, walkers, boaters, canalside communities and businesses to share what the nation’s 137-mile network means to them in the run-up to the 2016 World Canals Conference.
Alasdair Munro Talks at Shed
Alasdair gave two very different presentations this year. On his first visit he talked of his experiences and the challenges of the volunteering charity the Vine Trust. He returned and described his craftmanship in woodworking where he sources and selects the best timber before drying it and then designing and building his unique pieces. Both talks were thought provoking and stimulating in very different ways and we wish you continued success in both!
