Men in Sheds

Cotswold Friends has four Men in Sheds projects up and running across the North Cotswolds, in Moreton, Bourton, Northleach and our newest Shed in Campden in partnership with Campden Home Nursing.

We are always looking for new Members and Leaders for all of our sheds so please get in touch if you would like to join. Our Sheds are not just for men - everyone is very welcome!

Richard Hamer Men in Sheds

Watch our film of Men in Sheds Volunteer Leader, Richard Hamer, chatting about his role and what it involves.

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 those 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 is supported by Moreton Town Council.

Our Bourton Shed is situated at the British Legion site. Our Northleach Shed is up and running at the Westwoods Centre and our new Campden Shed is based at Jecca’s House.

If you would like to get involved, please get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
