Shedders and Fixers is a group based on the "Men's Shed" concept in Wisbech, but is open for men and women. You can come and learn the skills that people have to share, share your own skills or just have a coffee and a chat.

More Information

Shedders and Fixers is based on the concept of a “men’s shed”, but is open to people of any gender. You can come along to the workshop to learn new skills, teach other people the skills you have, or use the various tools to work on your own projects.

This group runs on a membership basis. Being a member enables you to use their facilities and equipment (following induction) in the wood, metal or craft areas during our opening times.

Many of their members are experienced experts in their chosen field and are only too happy to help you with your own projects.
