Men in Sheds is a project aimed at helping older men to learn new skills in retirement while also building social connections and overcoming loneliness. It greatly benefits the wider community, too, as most of the items created by the team, mainly from wood, are passed on to local charities or community groups.

Men in Sheds 1

 We work at the Community Centre in Mercer Close and have made many items, some of which you may have seen round the village:

  • The Planters and Bug Houses at the Station
    The Stocks and Character Cut Outs used at the Farmers Market.
    Planters at Thames Ditton Junior School
    The Sign Post at All Saints Western Green
    The Bug House at the Coop

Men in Sheds 2We have applied for funds, to pay for all we use in making these and many other things, to the Skipton Building Society Grassroots Giving Scheme and have been shortlisted!

 The final allocation is now down to the public to decide.

So we need your VOTE!
