A Hobby and social place for men
We are a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO – SC044586) and a member of the Scottish Men’s Shed Association. Men (18+ years) come to the Shed to chat, play cards, work on a computer, participate in hobbies or help in activities supporting the community. We have very well equiped workshops, social areas (including a kitchen) and a large garden with greenhouses, polytunnel, raised beds and picnic tables.
Membership is free – we just ask for a donation for teas and coffees

We have a large garden behind the old railway platform.
The garden has a large lawn, 2 greenhouses, several raised beds, and a wildflower area. We are also putting in a poly-tunnel. The garden development has been helped by generous funding from the Co-op.

The Shed might be able to help
We undertake projects to help individuals and the community, such as:
– restoring notice boards, furniture, benches, garden tables, railway barrows…

Our PROJECTS AND HOBBIES
Playhouse put together for a nursery in Ellon
We undertake a variety of projects in support of individuals, charities, community groups, councils and for specific fund raising purposes.
Many of the men also carry out their own projects at the shed. These include wood turning, photography, motorbike restoration, and model railways.
Of course we have many men who come for a cuppa, a chat, a game of cards or dominoes and to enjoy the company of other people.
