Dereham Men’s Shed is a community group where men can enjoy activities similar to those they might do in a garden shed, only in the company of others. Members can create and learn new skills or simply chat and make new friends over a cuppa.
Dereham Men’s Shed is based at Dereham Theatre Company’s building on Norwich Street, Dereham. We have our own well-equipped workshop for our members to use and we have use of the kitchen where we can chat away to our heart’s content! We also have access to an upstairs room where the atmosphere is rather quieter. In April 2023 we received a grant from Morrison’s Foundation to construct a ramp to help improve access to the building.
We get up to all sorts of different activities and it is not just about the workshop. We regularly help local charity organisations with gardening, decoriating and simple construction work. Our members can also join us on days out to local attractions and other places of interest, such as Fransham Forge and the City of Norwich Aviation Museum.
In the workshop we are able to construct items to aid the local community. For example, we have constructed a bar for a local care home and bird boxes for a local surgery. Members can often be found crafting away to make a variety of things to sell at fairs and other events.
If you would like to know more then we would love to see you on a Wednesday afternoon and answer any quetions you may have.
