Men in Sheds

Cotswold Friends currently has three Men in Sheds projects up and running - Moreton-in-Marsh, Bourton on the Water and our newest shed venture underway in Northleach. From Tuesday 7th September, in partnership with Campden Home Nursing, there will be a new Men in Sheds project in Chipping Campden. We are looking for new members for the Northleach and Chipping Campden Sheds and Leaders for all 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. The Bourton shed is situated at the British Legion site. 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.
