Yate ‘Men’s Shed’  - Visit  Contact Page to get in Contact

In July 2019 we registered as a ‘Charitable Incorporated Organisation’ (CIO) charity. We were previously a small community charity.

We currently have approximately 30 active members with an average attendance of 10 to 12 members at our twice weekly practical sessions.  The Yate Men’s Shed trustees have been very busy changing to a  CIO -  [Registered Charity No. 1184340]. This will formalise our structure, allow financial transparency, protect our members and allow us to apply for larger grants.

We meet informally at the Armadillo on Thursday mornings where ALL are welcome to join us. We also have two 3 hour practical sessions per week at the Yate Parish hall where we have a good sized workshop with power and hand tools.

Please come along and join us for a cup of tea and see what we are doing

The social aspect is as important to us as the Workshop - specific skills are not important to join the shed but always welcome.

If you might be interested in what we are doing then
