Since 2010 the Shed has grown, with both members and workshop space.  Workshop space is now about 250m2 but still too small for the 50 or more members who regularly come to the Shed. Our building program is on track and we are nearing completion of stage 1,130m2 of new toilet, kitchen, meeting and office facilities. Then it’s on to stage 2, an additional 100m2 of new workshop space,

Our Shed is well equipped for woodworking projects as well as quite reasonable metalworking facilities. A garden group is also very active landscaping the site with retaining walls and raised garden beds with a good supply of produce being delivered to the local food bank.  Most of the activities undertaken at the Shed are for the local community and community groups.  There is also a small music group who will be looking forward to our new meeting facilities for their weekly jam sessions.

The Shed operates a warm welcome to all men, and ladies are more than welcome with cakes and scones.
