About Men In Sheds

Men in Sheds is a service run by Age UK Cheshire. The sheds are places where men over 50 can come together to learn and share their skills, socialise and make new friends. You will always be guaranteed a warm welcome and great banter within our shed community.

Bring your creative ideas to life or simply join us for tea, banter and biscuits.

We actively promote a culture of sharing and allowing  the sheds to promote new activities. Perhaps you could bring your unique skills to the shed and introduce new ideas? Why not pop into your local shed for a chat and see for yourself. Our sheds have a small monthly charge. For more information on joining Men in Sheds please contact your nearest shed. Details are on the back of this leaflet.

What we do

  • Activities vary from shed to shed but generally include:
  • Woodworking
  • Woodturning and Pen making
  • Community projects
  • Upcycling
  • Computing

In addition to the above, one of our sheds has a gym, one  has an art studio and two have 3D printers, as these are  activities that our men are interested in. We constantly review shed activities to reflect the interests of our members so we encourage you to ask if there is a specific craft or activity you would like to include. If it is feasible, we will do our best to include it.
