Taking Shedding to Communities


Men’s Sheds are places where people (mainly men) go to make and mend things for the themselves and the community; this has a positive impact on health and well-being.

Shed-in-a-Bus is a mobile Shed that is being built by converting a double decker bus into a mobile workshop. Shed-in-a-Bus will then visit subscribing communities on a regular basis (much like a mobile library), and members will board the bus to make and mend things and meet like-minded people, like they would in a fixed Shed. In this way, Shed-in-a-Bus will make Shedding available to more communities in and around the Basingstoke area.

The project is the brainchild of Basingstoke Shed and our aim is to have the service running on a pilot basis in autumn 2019, with the service starting by January 2020.
