Would you like to have a Men’s Shed in your area?

Sheds are community spaces where men can socialise, work on practical projects and learn new skills together. Whether making toys for craft fairs, planters for civic buildings or even restoring village signs you can be sure it’s not all about the wood or metal working- it’s just as much about the company; the morning ritual of tea and biscuits and banter, the sharing of stories as well as skills.

The first Men’s Shed opened in Maldon in 2014, since then the Essex Shed Network has provided support and advice to many other Sheds which have successfully opened across the county. And now we have found a site for a potential Shed between Langham and Boxted, but we need your help to get it off the ground and make it a success.

So, if you would like to have a Men’s Shed in your community, then please come along to an informal meeting that Boxted Parish Council is hosting at Boxted Village Hall to express your interest and find out more- Wednesday 24 April 7pm.
We look forward to meeting you there!
