DIY store puts night aside for women

A female only night has recently been hosted at a DIY store in Bromsgrove, with the hope being that more women will get involved in the sector.

The event delivered DIY tips to women by a variety of means. If similar sessions are held in other parts of the UK, it could mean that more people choose to look into services like floor sanding in Wirral. Lisa Childs, a director who attended the event in the Broad Street outlet, said:

“I was amazed by how many ladies wanted to join us on the night and we already have a waiting list for a second similar event in the autumn.”

Local enterprises supplied free refreshments for the evening. Huntley Thawe, an expert in DIY who has featured in television programmes, gave a presentation in relation to home improvements. Visitors to the store then witnessed live demonstrations of a range of tasks.

Attendees were shown how to drill a hole in bricks and how to change a washer on a tap. A local handyman was present to help the other staff answer a variety of questions from the women. A prize draw was held to assist a local charity. In total, a sum of £50 was collected in aid of Libby Mae’s Little Angels.

Fire safety tips were also made available on the night, and representatives of the fire brigade for the Worcester area were in attendance. In addition, women who had concerns about crime could talk about the issue with crime prevention specialist Peter Aston.
