Shed City

Unfortunately, I have left Brockley for the bright lights of Croydon. I am, however, fortunate enough to be employed as 'Peabody Housing Association's Men's Shed Project Co-ordinator', and am in the process of creating a Men's Shed in Deptford.

Men's Sheds are a concept originating in Australia, and becoming big here in the UK

We are inviting men over 50 to come and use the space  and tools to make things together, or individually. To socialise over a cup of tea, or to knuckle down and start making things.

There are no set times of operation at the moment, but we will open it on the days/ times that suit those that would like to use it.

We are also looking for tool donations, and volunteers who would like to help out at the project, full training will be offered, and expenses covered.

I can be contacted on I will also have a stall at Lewisham People's Day on July 13th, if people would prefer to talk to me in person.
