Enjoy making or fixing things? Need access to a good workshop? Want to meet interesting people? Like chatting about technical stuff? Feel the need for male company? Missed the workplace banter? Need to do something different?
Joining our Shed could be the answer:
Christchurch Men’s Shed was formed in July 2016 and is a member of the National Men’s Shed Association. It is also a registered charity. The group is run by a Management Committee, elected by members, who all have an equal say.
We originally created a branch and workshop in Highcliffe at Greystones House, the home of the Highcliffe Community Association but recently we have moved to larger, more accessible premises just up the road in The Lower Hall, The Old School, 254 Lymington Road, Highcliffe, BH23 5ET.
The workshop is equipped with a selection of power and hand tools. Our members have a wide range of craft and technical skills and experience which we are happy to share with others.
Our workshop is currently open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from about 9:45am however we plan to extend this in line with demand. Members carry out their own or group project or just drop in to see what is going on.
Every month we hold lunchtime social gathering at a local club to have a drink, bite to eat, social chat and laugh!
On occasions we arrange trips to places of interest. These have included a conducted tour of Bournemouth Aviation Museum and a behind-the-scenes tours of Highcliffe Castle and Sammy Miller's Museum workshop. More are planned in the future.
Our membership fee is currently only £20 per annum which is renewed in April. In addition there is a £1 per day attendance fee that gives access to all the facilities as well as tea & coffee in our own kitchen.
