Tools Company

About Tools Company

Tools Company is part of the Men in Sheds project. In the shed, men can enjoy spending a few hours a week helping to renovate donated tools for a good cause and making something to sell. Experience and skill levels are not important; volunteers work alongside Tools Company participants who may have additional support needs. Men in Sheds aims for older men to: meet kindred spirits; refurbish and renovate tools and garden equipment so they are no longer rusty, redundant, and forgotten but perfectly workable items; make rustic garden/allotment items (benches, bird boxes, and planters) from donated recycled materials; enjoy a fine selection of tea and biscuits whilst discussing the local and global situation, and put together suggestions for setting the world to rights!
