Before the virus arrived a surprising amount of activity happened in Oakley Men's Shed!

Oakley Men's Shed meets every
Monday and Thursday 10.00am - 1.00pm
in the Scout and Guide Centre, St John's Piece, Oakley.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Its a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice skills and enjoy making and mending
Sheds are all about social connections and friendship building, sharing skills and knowledge, mugs of tea and chocolate digestive biscuits and, of course, a lot of laughter.

What's happened recently . . .
Ian's N gauge railway is taking shape. At least all the points now operate electronically
Stuart's commissioned bird table towered over our work area
Thanks to the generous provision by one Shedder of a new lathe we are learning the delicate art of wood turning under the expert guidance of John.
Completed just in time for Christmas our second wheelie has proved to be more complicated to deliver than we had first thought!
But we managed it. This shed had a third compartment for garden waste bags and glass.
Currently we have some thirty members. These Shedders just happened to be unlucky enough to be at the Shed when the cameraman visited!
A typical Monday. Wood turning, bird table and plant box construction, card model building and N gauge layout construction.
Restoring the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Noticeboard involved a lot of hard work for the Shedders but its now securely back in the ground.
Raynor's tipper truck is coming on a treat. Just the challenge of six truck wheels now!
The amount of equipment we have amassed in such a short time is really quite amazing. Here's Steve busy carving a seat arm.
Oakley Men's Shed tackle the Oakley Community Association's project in Meon Road. Stuart and Eric did all the hard work, Graeme just turned up for the chocolate Brownies
More village work by the Oakley Men's Shed installation Team, this time the OCA bench on the path linking Oakley to Kempshott
We deconstructed, moved and rebuilt this storage shed which
belongs to our play school neighbours. And we built a performance stage for them too.
A really busy Thursday scene. Must be the glorious September weather.
Probably our biggest restoration job to date is this tipping trailer. We're replacing the floor and side boarding and providing it with a little tic.
