A community resource project
Wendover Shed is a community project to set up a shared space where people can meet to create and share practical projects, with access to working facilities, tools, and each other's help and experience. The goal is to promote health and well-being through social interaction and practical activities.
No special skills are needed to join. We have opportunities for many types of members. You might be looking to join our practical make and mend sessions or simply meet up for a coffee and a natter. You might want to help us paint our new shed or help us with a small garden outside. Alternatively, you may be looking to get more involved as a volunteer, helper or sponsor to support our activities.
We'll be updating this website as we progress, so check back for updates.
