About Us

We are a group of people who enjoy getting together to socialise, and hopefully make things as we do.

The Fakenham Community Shed is being set up along the lines of the global Mens Shed movement.

We are currently a fledgling group with a small steering committee. Please join us to help develop our ideas further!

What is this Community Shed about “

We have found “our place” in Fakenham where we will meet and make. Adults over 18 are welcome to come along.
We aim to meet once or twice a week, to socialize, meet new people and make friends along the way !
You can take part in activities like woodwork, metalwork and other crafts. We hope to be able to provide many interest based activities and are wanting to invite anybody with particular craft skills or an interest.
The main aim is that we will be guided by our members and it will be a place to meet for your well-being and health first and foremost.

It’s intended to give you a place to go where you will feel welcome. 

At this time the Community Shed is in the developing stages and will constantly be making changes as we go we hope to keep you as up to date as possible.

There is a suggested yearly subscription to join the Shed, and possibly a weekly cost – this is yet to be decided on, but it will be a not for profit organisation so the cost will be low for local peopl

Who are we?

We are a group of local people, all volunteers, who realise there is very little activity in Fakenham for people that may not have a large social circle, and may spend a lot of time home alone. We all know what a negative effect that can have on our mental wellbeing.                            We would like to do something about that!

We will need more people to become part of our group. The group is made of people who are looking to be part of something. We can each contribute different skills and learn new skills as well.

 We do need more volunteers who would be able to help out at our Shed.

We welcome suggestions from anyone who may have any good ideas to help us make this happen – everyone is welcome to contribute!

We will be aiming to get financial support from local Companies, as well as applying for appropriate financial grants that are available for this type of organisation.
