The Men in Sheds Biggin Hill group started in September 2016 following lots of enthusiastic discussions between different local individuals and groups from AgeUK Bromley & Greenwich, ably supported by Bromley Council and Biggin Hill Residents Association. We started meeting in The Spitfire Youth Centre on Mondays. Yes there is some irony in that a group of older men are meeting in a youth centre!
We now have so many regular attendees that we have expanded to a second day and are now meeting on Tuesdays too. To help us get moving we also received a donation of some workshop machinery from Biggin Hill Airport for which we are very grateful.
Thanks to the very kind generosity of Piercy & Company, Office Architects of the Year 2018, we have just taken delivery of a new (very large) toy. It's hiding in the cupboard in the workshop. A wood cutting laser! Men In Sheds is entering the Space Age. We're looking forward to many interesting things being made!
The Biggin Hill shed were asked to build a replica Anderson shelter for the Big ‘O’ Vintage Festival in Orpington. The result was excellent and flat packed for transporting from our Shed at Biggin Hill to the festival.
