Our Mission

The Camberley & District Men’s Shed (C&DMS) is a community enterprise aimed at providing a welcoming environment primarily for, but not exclusively, men who may find it difficult to build social connections following retirement or bereavement, where they can share skills and forge new friendships. 

Our Shed started from an initial meeting held in 2021 when an embryonic group of trustees got together and registered the C&DMS as a charity. We then set about raising funds from various sources whilst also searching for suitable premises. In 2022 we were able to secure a lease from Surrey Heath Borough Council for the London Road Pavilion and after various delays we were able to start work this year to repurpose the premises into workshop and social spaces.

As one of over 600 Men’s sheds in the UK, Camberley and District Men’s Shed (C&DMS) has joined a worldwide group of thousands of sheds operating worldwide. We belong to the UKMSA (UK Men’s Shed Association) the organisation that provides help and assistance to their members who want to set up new sheds, want ideas for fundraising, or help with insurance for example.
