DIY SOS comes a knocking…

Back in February of 2022, WSM Ltd helped to offer up their services to the BBC TV show, DIY SOS.

We helped develop a much needed sustainable community asset for the people in and around Fegg Hayes in Stoke on Trent. Originally a grass roots project that has been granted charitable status as the Sylvester’s Community Trust.

WSM helped build the sustainable cabin on site which helps to house the workshops for the general community. Fully kitted out with electrics and water, it was one of the focal features on the previous piece of land.

Along with a whole host of other contractors from around the area, they developed the idea of converting a dead space of land into a multi-functional area, which offers a sense of relief to its local residents. The ambition is to produce a desperately needed, productive green space that maintains its own viability, using build techniques and on-going systems that allow for continual re-use. To include and encourage community engagement, health related activities (particularly mental health), education, food growing and play / recreational spaces for every one of any age and ability, now and in the future.

We hope to be involved with future events with DIY SOS should they ever come a knocking again!
