Another season of Men in Sheds sessions begins at Mycenae House on Wednesday 7 February – and this time the women are coming along too.

Men in Sheds helps men over 50 sharpen – or gain – woodworking skills, helping community projects in their local areas.

It helps men who may otherwise be stuck at home get out of the house, make new friends, learn new skills and help others in their community. You don’t need to be an expert – you just need to have an interest.

Now, after numerous requests, a companion Women in Sheds series is also starting up – so if you’re a woman over 50 who’s good with tools (or would like to be), organisers at Age UK Bromley and Greenwich would love to have you along. You can just come for a chat if you like.

Women in Sheds runs from 10.30am to 1pm on Wednesdays until Easter, with Men in Sheds running from 2-3.30pm on the same days. Cost is £1 (with tea and biscuits thrown in). Call 020 8294 3012 or visit the Bromley & Greenwich Men In Sheds website for more.

Mycenae House’s Seniors Drop-In Cafe, which runs from 1-4pm each Thursday, continues, with participants knitting for community projects. All are welcome – cost is £1 (includes tea and cake).

And next month, Age UK Bromley & Greenwich’s Repair Cafe comes to Mycenae House. Got broken furniture, small electric appliances, bicycles, crockery, toys, phones, computers or gadgets? Don’t chuck ’em – bring ’em along and get them fixed. It’s on Wednesday 21 March from 10.30 am – 3.30pm. Organisers are also looking for volunteers to help out – contact details are above.
