Bishops Itchington Men's Shed
Meet the Shedders!
Our Warwickshire shed was setup in 2017. Located just off Gaydon Road, Bishops Itchington we are close to the M40. The Shed has recently been renovated with new electrics, tools and benches.
The Shed is supported by the members, ranging from hard working hobbyists to willing handymen and those who just appreciate a tea or coffee in a convivial atmosphere. Our members come from all over Warwickshire, as well as Bishops Itchington itself.
We currently meet each Wednesday and Friday evening from 7:00pm
About Men's Shed
A Men's Shed offers members the opportunity to share the tools and resources they need to work on projects of their own choosing at their own pace and in a safe, friendly and inclusive place.
They are places of skill-sharing and informal learning, of individual pursuits and community projects, of purpose, achievement and social interaction. A place of leisure where men come together to work, or just chat.
About our shed
The Shed is supervised by committee members, who are acquainted with proper safety procedures and can provide practical advice about using our comprehensive range of power tools.
