In our group we have teachers, tradesmen, management, craftsmen, but mostly we are diy‘ers with varying degrees of skills who just love playing around with wood
Men’s Sheds (or Sheds) are a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice skills and enjoy making and mending.
Activities at home are often solitary in nature while Men’s Sheds are the opposite. They’re about social connections and friendship building, sharing skills and knowledge, and of course a lot of laughter, usually with coffee and biscuits!
Activities in Sheds vary greatly, in Burnham and Highbridge Mens Shed you can usually find woodworking, metalworking, repairing and restoring.
Whatever the activity, the essence of a Shed is not a building, but the connections and relationships between its members.
