Building upon its success in supporting the community throughout the Covid pandemic Hands Together Ludlow has announced plans to develop a ‘Men’s Shed’ in Ludlow.

Men Sheds host similar activities to garden sheds – including woodwork, DIY and general making – but used by groups of people together. There are now  600 Men’s Sheds in the UK including several in Shropshire.

Ludlow Men’s Shed Co-ordinator, David Burton, described the project further “Men typically find it more difficult to build social connections than women, and unlike women of a similar age, less older men have networks of friends and rarely share personal concerns about health and personal worries. While men of all ages are welcome for some men, when retirement comes, it can feel like personal identity and purpose is lost. Sheds are whatever the members (known as Shedders) want them to be. They can be empty offices, portable cabins, warehouses or garages. Many Sheds get involved in community projects  – restoring and repairing items and building things for schools, libraries and individuals in need. At this stage we are not looking for Shed members but we do need a small number of individuals to drive the project forward – to spread the message and to help with identifying funding and premises etc., If somebody feels that they have the skills to assist they can contact us by emailing    This email address is being protected from spambots.

 Our vision is for a happy, hospitable, compassionate and just community which helps people help themselves, and our mission is to provide a more effective community process for achieving this vision. We do this by creating a network of volunteers which works with agencies, charitable organisations, local businesses and churches, to identify and provide relief to people in need and find community building solutions in Ludlow and the surrounding villages in South Shropshire.

We are funded by the community and many other groups, including:
