Who – What – Where – Why – When – Who

 

Stowmarket Meadlands Men’s Shed will be a larger version of the typical man’s shed in the garden.

A place where members will feel at home and pursue practical interests with a high degree of autonomy.

We are approaching local businesses for support, we are having regular meetings and are seeking local funding.

Composed by small committed group of men and a woman, who want to make this project a success, for the local community. If this interests you and you would like to know more please contact us. We would welcome the opportunity to talk to you and discuss our ideas, but also to listen to your suggestions and views.

Activities

  • making projects from wood
  • carpentry

Why

A Men’s Shed offers this to a group of such men where members share the tools and resources they need to work on projects of their own choosing at their own pace and in a safe, friendly and inclusive venue. They are places of skill-sharing and informal learning, of individual pursuits and community projects, of purpose, achievement and social interaction.

A place of leisure where men come together to work.

A Shed’s activities usually involve making or mending in wood (e.g. carpentry, joinery, turning, carving, whittling, marquetry, furniture renovation) but may include metalworking (milling, sheet metal, welding, etc.) bike repair, gardening, electronics, tool renovation, boat renovation, model engineering (model railways, planes) and even building a car! Reclamation, reuse and restoration will feature strongly – and some say that is true of the men too.
