Super Shed

A super-shed for repairing and crafting and more for our community

The Community Shed at 82

Affectionally known as “Brocklebank Hall” in memory of Ian Brocklebank, Big Local committee member and friend.

The Community Shed sits in the rear yard of the Big Local offices at 82 Grimsby Road. It’s an extra, specialist space for groups to meet and do activities that might not necessarily use an office space.

The space is safe and secure; has storage, wifi and heating; tables, chairs and workbenches; computer and TV and more.

It’s bookable by groups and can be used in many different ways.

Groups using the shed can have access to a separate kitchenette and toilet even when the main office building is shut.

Groups already starting to use the space include crafting and making groups.

Brocklebank Hall

The Super Shed was christened “Brocklebank Hall” in 2022 in memory of Ian Brocklebank who passed away Dec 2020. Ian was a long term committee member of Big Local North Cleethorpes and connected to the charitable and voluntary sector for decades. He’d been a passionate supporter of all our work for the Cleethorpes community.

The rather plain, grey metals doors to the shed were painted Feb 2020 by artist Lynsey Powles.


To Trusthouse Charitable Foundation for our principal funding.
