Buckingham Men in Sheds

The Cote, next to The Woolpack

A ‘Shed’ is a place where men can come along and take part in craft based activities similar to those they would do at home or in their own garden shed but with the bonus of other like-minded men providing good company. It’s a social group where men can be productive, socialise and be part of their local community. Activities include woodwork, metal work, electronics, weaving, computing and digital photography.
