Tendring Tool Refurbishment

An independent workshop supporting TWAM

Contact:  Peter Simpson
Phone: 07470 912382Email:  tendring@twam.uk

Open hours:  Friday  9.30am-1.00pm

We are an independent workshop that supplies tools to TWAM, operating from a refurbished portacabin and barn on a farm in the Beaumont area.  We also collect tools in the local area.  

We aim to bring men together and enjoy friendship and fellowship together.  If you would like to join our team please contact Peter for more information. The unit is situated at Beaumont just two miles outside Thorpe Le Soken.  

We also have a Haberdashery Team which meets once a week in the home of a volunteer during the week.  They sort materials and produce up to 70 haberdashery kits each week.  These are sent out with every sewing and knitting machine.  

Many craft items produced are sold locally to raise funds for TWAM which are then used to purchase items for the haberdashery kits like scissors, tape measures and needles that are not often donated but are critical to Haberdashery packs.

I love the opportunity to be able to reach out, mainly to retired men, to offer them  interests which enable them to build up friendship and fellowship together and help one another.
