The Men's Shed Stour

The Friends of Stour Connect charity are pleased to be able to support the wonderful facility of the Men’s Shed Stour which was established in 2017 and has been going from strength to strength. The facility is located in the Old Transport Garages in the car park across from the main Tricuro Building, and allows for men to come together and use or update their woodworking skills in a relaxed, informal, and friendly atmosphere. The shed is fully equipped and has all the tools you’ll need to produce the best quality wooden products including woodturning lathes, electric saws, drills, clamps, hand tools and of course, raw wooden materials. Many of the products created by the guys can be found on sale at various outlets such as “Bright Blooms Florists” in Shaftesbury and the “Twice But Nice” charity shop here at the centre.

So far, the guys at the Men’s Shed have created hedgehog houses, bug hotels, candle stick holders, doll’s houses and props for theatre production.

If you are interested in joining the group, you will be welcome to come along and use any of our facilities. You do not need to be referred, and there is no charge to use these facilities. Why not arrange to come and visit and see over the facilities for yourself?

To arrange, phone us on 01258 471359 or email us on: admin@friendsofstourconnect.org and we will arrange for you to be shown around the premises.
