Bus iness in Alton Town

On Friday 1st March 2019, Alton mens-shed were requested to visit the bus shelter at Alton station, that had been damaged, apparently by vandals. Keen to ensure that visitors arriving at Alton Station did not perceive the state of the bus shelter to be a reflection of what Alton is like, by mid-morning two members from Alton mens Shed arrived and made safe the shelter by removing the three perspex panels that had been dislodged and were posing a danger to the public. It later transpired that the damage had been witnessed to have been caused by a Stagecoach bus reversing into the shelter, and not by vandals at all. The panels were taken away to be cleaned up by Alton Mens Shed and were re-installed a few days later.

Alton Mens Shed has in the past helped the town by removing graffiti and damaged bus shelter panels and replacing them where necessary to improve the image of the town for arriving visitors. Involvement with other town charities enables them to show pride in their town by the Shed carrying out practical tasks using the skills of their members. If you have time on your hands, perhaps you would like to come along and join us.
