Cirencester Men’s Shed 


When we meet:

Cirencester  Men's Shed  is in the process of relocating to a new venue at the 1st Cirencester Scouts Hut, on Cotswold Lane Cirencester. A number of our members meet on a Tuesday morning 10am - 12pm at the Cirencester Fire Station Community Room , to chat , drink tea and coffee and have biscuits and cake and  to make preparations to enable the Shed to operate in as practicable way as possible at this new venue. We also meet on a Thursday 10am - 12pm at the Cirencester Scout Hut where it is possible to carry out an ever increasing number of practical projects.

Who we are:

Originally a Cirencester based Men’s Shed was set up under the wing of the Cirencester Charity Churn  in the old Hose Repair Workshop at the back of Cirencester Fire Station, thanks to the support of Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service. Unfortunately in 2020 this situation  changed due to alterations to the role of Cirencester Fire Station which now makes using this venue impracticable to also operate a Mens Shed there. As a result Churn have concentrated on setting up another Shed outside Cirencester, but the original group members  have continued to meet in Cirencester and have set up their own organisation under the UK Mens Shed Association  called Cirencester Mens Shed.

Prior to this, members regularly worked on all sorts of projects in the Shed, personal, community and charity, as well as of course consuming lots of tea, coffee and biscuits whilst discussing all manner of topics in the meeting room.

Donations of tools and materials have been very welcome and arrangements will be made to resume accepting, and collecting them if necessary, once we have a dedicated workshop operating again.

The UK Men’s Sheds Association


The Men in Sheds movement began in Australia where older men realised the value of coming together around practical tasks on a regular basis, particularly if they had a designated workshop where tools and work in progress could be stored. The idea came to the UK in 2009 and the impact they have been having has been so positive, we now have a dedicated association, the UK Men’s Sheds Association (UKMSA).

The UKMSA promote and support Men’s Sheds through the media and collect and redistribute helpful information about the project. They act as a central point for all sheds, responding to enquiries, signposting and advising existing and potential participants. They also help interested men to create a Men’s Shed and build a community in their region.

Numbers that show the significance of the Men in Sheds project in the UK have been published by the UKMSA:

  • 432 sheds currently open
  • 118 shed in development
  • 6 new sheds open every month
  • 10,000+ members.
