The Shed Wymondham are on the lookout for new more accessible and suitable premises.
With the help of local businesses and individual donations The Shed managed to raise the necessary funding earlier this year to be able to continue this fantastic project.
The Shed Wymondham was originally incorporated in the Spring of 2016 and is affiliated to the National Men’s Shed Association.
It now has a rising membership and, in the Spring of 2019, members of the The Shed agreed that they would form a separate Community Group in order to fulfil the objectives of the Group and help secure a sustainable future for members.
There is also an application to become an Incorporated Charity in the near future.
Values and Ethos
- The Shed offers men a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice skills and enjoy making and mending.
- It offers a place to meet, share ideas and experience.
- It offers a safe and secure environment to nurture new skills, maintain or re-invigore existing skill sets and encourage personal wellbeing.
The Shed is a place where men over the age of 18 can go and interact with other men in a safe and non-judgmental environment. An environment is created within a facility where practical activities can be engaged with the assistance of skilled men with a strong sense of community.
The Shed project is ‘also well placed’ to assist men with social and emotional issues who may feel that they do not “fit in”.
With this in mind The Shed is looking to the Wymondham community to help look for new more accessible and suitable premises. It could be a part of or an unused building, barn or industrial unit. Do you know of any empty premises that need some TLC for low or nominal rent?
All The Shed members are volunteers and have created a project that helps members from all walks of life and have a strong belief in our Values and Ethos.

The Shed continues to be open on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings and welcomes new members AND their skills, friendship and the Shed’s workshops and facilities
