Selkirk Community Shed is set to hold its first sale having already got to work in its new premises, set up just six weeks ago.

The Shedders are holding a fundraising sale on Saturday, September 22, and amongst the items for sale will be members’ first homemade products.

Shedder-made items, shed-grown garden produce and some tools which have been donated but are surplus to requirements will be on sale at the group’s new base, at Goslawdales, behind the Argus Centre.
