farnham men in sheds

community projects

a weekly group for people interested in making and repairing, delivered through a collaboration between Farnham Maltings and space2grow

Member of Men in Sheds working on wooden planks

Do you enjoy making, mending and woodworking in the outdoors? Do you have time and practical skills? Are you a local organisation who would like to commission a woodworked project?

This group was set up to provide a friendly environment for men to get together and work on projects. They respond to requests from community groups, schools, and other voluntary and statutory organisations to undertake make and repair projects from a custom-made shed in central Farnham.

The group meets every Tuesday from 10am - 2pm, on a drop-in basis (free of charge), in the beautiful grounds of space2grow, next to Bishop’s Meadow.

how to find us

space2grow is located just off the south-west corner of St. Andrews Church Yard. As you approach from Lower Church Lane, keep the church on your right, and follow the path that leads round a corner between two brick walls. There is a sign to Bishop’s Meadow. At the end of the path you’ll find a large wooden door. This is the entrance to space2grow.

do you have any unwanted tools?

Men in Sheds are currently looking to expand the tools available to them. As part of our mission to reduce, reuse and recycle, we would love to hear from you if you have any of the following lying around unused and would be happy to donate them to us:

  • Sash clamps – any size of interest
  • Set of allen keys of differing sizes – looking for both metric and imperial
  • Files
  • Rasps
  • A ground sheet or large covering for floors when painting
