Mens Shed


Coldstream Mens' Shed was the brainchild of Jock Law and a few others, ably supported by Juliana Amaral of the SBC Community Building Capacity Team and Councillor John Greenwell.

Once it was inaugurated, the number of members grew substantially and today there is a membership of around 50 and any gentleman of the district is welcome to join the membership.

The Shed is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 10am-4pm and the members enjoy camaraderie, refreshments, chat and either making things, learning how to do things or repair objects. A lot of the finished articles end up in the community.

Jock chairs the shed and can be reached on 01890-882333 or Stephen Acornley is the secretary and can be reached on

The shed is a registered SCIO charity, has been a total success so far and is currently based at 40, High Street. Eventually the Shed will be moving to the Rodger Hall.
