Men in Sheds is a project aimed primarily at at men aged 50+ (although applications from women and younger men are welcome) which looks to bring members together to put their practical skills to good use and encourage them to be more socially active.

It provides a space to develop a hobby workshop where members can work together on a range of practical activities. This could focus on woodworking, horticulture or metal work, however, new project ideas are always welcome.

Members can put their skills to good use, share their knowledge, learn new skills and generally put the world to rights over a cup of tea. Members come from a wide variety of backgrounds ranging from highly skilled to those with little or no experience, but all work together and there is a role for everyone!

Thanks to support from Dunstable Town Council. Central Bedfordshire Council, local business supporters and members, our Shed has recently completed a major renovation and upgrade project and now offers excellent facilities to our members. Our official re-opening on May 12th 2023 was well attended by Councillors, Officers, friends of the Shed and by our MP, Andrew Selous.

The Shed gives members the chance to:

Make new friends.
Experience the camaraderie of working with other members.
Put practical skills to good use and also share them with others.
Try something new and learn new skills.
Support their local community.
