The “Men’s Sheds” movement began in Australia.  It has flourished through the value of coming together around practical tasks on a regular basis, particularly with a designated place or workshop where tools and work in progress can be stored. This appeals to men of all ages although most ‘shedders’ are retired.

Sheds started in UK in 2009 and there are now well over 300 spread all over the country.

Activities in the Whitchurch Shed include woodwork, electronics, computers, art and crafts etc. The main objectives are to meet up in a fun, relaxed and sociable place. Although we have been doing community projects members can also pursue their own projects or just come to be sociable.

We have recently built a 12-square meter portable shed for Whitchurch Town Council  for Santa’s grotto at the Christmas lights switch on November 25th.  This was erected at BlackBerry Fair and used to promote the Whitchurch Shed and the Woodland Trust.

We have benefited from donations of a large collection of tools from the late Mr N Nickleson’s workshop.  We have had several cash donations from local charities.  The workshop is now set up and well equipped.  Although some members bring their own tools there are plenty of tools and equipment provided.

Location; Centre North East, Bridgewater St. Whitchurch, Shropshire SY13 1Q, by Tesco Car Park between the Swimming Pool and the Fire Station

Opening times:  Wednesday and Thursdays 10am to 4pm (other times by arrangement with a keyholder)
