Like all charitable organisations we have had our income decimated by Covid 19.
Your support and generous contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. You can help fund our mission to improve facilities at the shed and further help with community projects.
The Shed is now open on a daily basis to new and existing members. Initially with morning sessions.
Mon to Fri 10:00 to 13:00. There will still be some precautions in place and we may have to limit numbers inside the shed if it gets busy. Afternoon sessions by arrangement will also be available.

Men in Sheds is a project aimed specifically at men aged 50+ and looks to bring men together to put their practical skills to good use and encourage them to be more socially active. It provides a space to develop a hobby workshop where men can work together on a range of practical activities. This could focus on wood-working, horticulture or metal work, however new project ideas are always welcome. Members can put their skills to good use, share their knowledge, learn new skills and generally put the world to rights over a cup of tea. Members can come from a wide variety of backgrounds ranging from highly skilled to those with little or no experience, but all work together and there is a role for everyone!
It gives men the chance to: Make new friends.
Experience the camaraderie of working with other men.
Put practical skills to good use and also share them with others.
Try something new and learn new skills.
Support their local community.
