Dereham Men's Shed

A social space for men to connect, create and converse


What are Men's Sheds?

Men’s Sheds are similar to garden sheds – a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice skills and enjoy making and mending. The difference is that garden sheds and their activities are often solitary in nature while Men’s Sheds are the opposite. They’re about social connections and friendship building, sharing skills and knowledge, and of course a lot of laughter.


Dereham Men’s Shed is a place where individuals can bring along and share their hobbies, crafts, and skills with other like minded ‘shedders’. Being quite a young group we are still finding our place in the community but we are delighted to have already constructed some planters and we have a stack of old pallets to use as our raw material.

Who can Join

We are an inclusive group and open our doors to anyone of 18 years of age or over. (Remember, we are a "Men's" Shed!) Everyone is welcome to drop in and see what we do. If you think that you would like to join us then you will be more than welcome. While there is an membership fee please don't let that stop you getting in touch.

Unfortunately the business has had to recall the space so we find ourselves looking for new workshop premises. We are still meeting as usual in Dereham Baptist Church and we have got…
