Browns Family Golf Course was created by the golfing legend, Henry Cotton, a world famous golfer of his day. Power was needed on site to serve the club house and water the greens, and so two Ruston machines were installed, which are still there to this day, untouched for over 50 years. A grant was found to help make the building housing the machinery watertight once again but here is little or no money to restore the machinery itself. Men in Sheds was approached to see if we could help. So we managed to get a group of retired engineers to come along to see if this is a project that would interest them, and we are pleased to say that it most certainly does! We are currently full at this shed (insurance and safety needs mean we are limited on how many men can be working in here at any one time) but if you would like a visit, get in touch on our contact page and we will see what we can do for you. For more information please contact Lois Prior at Age UK IW on (01983) 525282 or email email@example.com
