Make and Mend Shed

Back to Activities

The Make and Mend Shed is a chance to meet with like-minded people and bring a project you are working on, start a new project, or help someone else with their project. It's also a great chance to chat with others and make some new friends.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • It’s a chance to socialise with others in a relaxed atmosphere
  • You can practice old skills or learn some new ones
  • Making and mending helps you keep your mind active

What to Expect

On arriving at FACT please be mindful of the minibuses that will be driving around the car park.

You’re welcome to park opposite the FACT Hub.

The Make and Mend Shed currently has about 10+ men attend weekly; there currently are no women attending, however any adult over the age of 18 is welcome.

You are free to bring a project you are working on, or you can help others with projects they are working on. Teas and coffees are available, so you’re welcome to sit and have a drink at your leisure.

No need to book, you can just turn up. However, if you have any questions you are welcome to contact Dave by phone.

Toilets are available in the FACT Community Hub.


More Information

The Make and Mend Shed is based on the concept of a “Men’s Shed,” however any adult over the age of 18 is welcome.

It’s a community space for people to connect, converse and create. The activities are often similar to those of garden sheds, but for groups of people to enjoy together. They help reduce loneliness and isolation, but most importantly, they’re fun.

The Make and Mend Shed is about meeting like-minded people and having someone to share your worries with. It is about having fun, sharing skills and knowledge, and gaining a renewed sense of purpose and belonging.

This activity is free to attend.


This project has received grant funding from Healthy Fenland.
