Shed Reopening

Whitchurch Shed hopes to reopen soon and is currently in an advanced stage of arranging the new location.

We will be calling a meeting as soon as we have sufficient information so that the official go ahead can be given by the members.

Please note that the first stage will involve quite a lot of work to get the workshop set up again so if you are willing to help please let us know.

See https://whitchurchmeninsheds.uk/contact for info on the Amazon and Paypal schemes where you can make small donations to WMIS when you shop.  The newer Amazon Smile scheme costs you nothing and Amazon donates 0.5% to your nominated charity; which can be WMIS if you wish (Please)..

The UK Shed association has held a seminar about Shed reopening and a video recording of this can be viewed on You Tube here: GB Getting Sheds Back to Business: Live chat + Q&A

If you are interested in joining us please contact us. so we can keep you updated on progress.

guysinshedThe “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 over 500 spread all over the country.    There is a national orginization which has a map of shads at: menssheds.org.uk/find-a-shed/

Activities in the Whitchurch Shed included 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 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.
