Billingshurst Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The Men’s Shed is a community wellbeing project to provide a place for people who might otherwise struggle with loneliness or boredom. We want to build a permanent Shed, where we can meet, make and restore things, or just sit and talk. Currently we are meeting in the local scout hut, so are unable to make a mess, set up machinery, or store materials.

What we'll deliver:

  • A permanent Shed
  • Machinery and equipment
  • A space for conversation with fellow shedders, and the opportunity to learn new skills.

Why it's a great idea:

An opportunity to help the mental well-being of the local men (and women) by providing a welcoming space to meet up and chat. Also, the option to join in with making and repairing things, some of which can be sold to raise cash for the on-going expenses of the Shed.

Steps to get it done:
