Thistle Men’s Shed

Thistle’s Shed is a place for men to come together, socialise and take part in activities of their choice.

Service Description

When it first opened in 2016, the Shed was initially a space for veterans. However, the veteran members soon decided they wanted the group to be open to all men and since then has been a space for veterans and non-veterans alike.

Some of the activities inclide woodworking projects, organising the ‘Shed Library,’ Airfix model painting and refurbishing an old dolls house.

Opening Times/Days: Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11.00 am – 4.00 pm.
