Men in Sheds

OPEN DAY Our Moreton Men in Sheds venue is holding an Open Day on Saturday 24th July, 10am to 2pm. There will be a raffle plus items for sale including planters, bird tables, bug hotels, refurbished garden tools and more. Come and see what we do at the shed, join us for tea and cake and see if you would like to join us. Find us at University Allotments, Moreton in Marsh GL56 0EW.

Cotswold Friends currently has two Men in Sheds projects up and running with, one at Moreton and our newest shed venture underway in Northleach. We are looking for new Members for the Northleach Shed and Leaders for both sheds so please do get in touch if you would like to join. Ladies are also very welcome!

Shed Members use and share valuable practical skills to work on both community and individual projects, but the real value of the shed is the uplifting camaraderie and peer support that the shed environment provides to the men (and some ladies!) who attend. Many Shedders are experiencing bereavement, poor health or loneliness. Our Moreton Men-in-Sheds project has grown significantly with a donated portacabin on the Moreton University allotment site, and supported by Moreton Town Council. Our new Northleach site is at the Westwoods Centre and is just getting up and running so if you would like to get involved, please do get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
