AgeUK Bromley & Greenwich Men In Sheds

Biggin Hill Shed

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.

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!

Another new toy took up residence in The Shed, kindly donated by the Penge Shed.
Peter and Alan worked long and hard on it and have restored it to almost pristine, out-of-the-box condition. It's very heavy and took three of us to lift it on to the bench.

We recently celebrated our 1st Birthday completing our first full year of Men In Sheds at Biggin Hill. This is what the shed looked like when it was a gym. Thanks to everyone who has helped us get there.

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.
