West Bletchley Shed – who we are

Thank you for visiting our website. The West Bletchley Shed is now into its 6th year of existence and goes from strength to strength. To view our activities, please navigate to the “Shed News” page.

We are a group of mostly men (although we do have a lady members and equally welcomes women who want to come and learn DIY skills or participate in our activities) who currently meet in a converted football changing room within Rickley Park, Bletchley for which we are indebted to West Bletchley Council who kindly provide us with the facility. We are looking for alternative premises as we have outgrown the present site we occupy and need to find somewhere larger that not only facilitates woodworking, but also ‘clean’ activities such as model making, IT and cookery. Please email the Shed at westbletchleyshed@gmail.com  if you can help.

The “Shed” undertakes a range of community-based projects that will benefit organisations within its catchment of West Bletchley and the wider area of Milton Keynes.  Examples of the “Shed’s” community work includes making wheelchair friendly garden planters, helping to refurbish the St Mary’s Church Sensory Garden in Church Green Road, Bletchley and working with local schools that have special needs children amongst their pupils.

The Shed is non-profit making but financially self-supporting, and makes products all of which can be seen on our “Shed Products” page which can be made to order. To order, please email westbletchleyshed@gmail.com  with details of your requirements and any measurements as appropriate. We can, within reason, make most things and also undertake small repairs.  The money we make is used to buy more materials as well as to cover Shed overheads such as insurance.

If you live within the MK3 postcode covered by West Bletchley Council and would love to come along and contribute towards our projects as well as learn new skills, you are most welcome.  We meet on most mornings Monday to Friday from 10 am until around 12.30 pm.  For more details, please visit our “Contact Us” page.
