Sheddit! is a wellbeing project, specifically aimed at men. We intend to create a safe-space, where the men of Swavesey and surrounding villages can come, hang-out and work on a variety of different projects. We aim to cater for woodworking and metal-working with possible future development into electronics, jewellery and computing.
The name Sheddit! is a reference not only to the UK Mens’ Shed Association that we are a member of but also to the shedding of loneliness and depression.
We hope to hold regular ‘repair kitchens’, where members of the public can bring us broken or damaged furniture and appliances, and we will attempt to repair them, as well as having regular sales days where stuff that has been made in the shed will be available for purchase.
