The Men's Shed is basically a social club with a communal workshop.
The Hackspace (currently a lower priority) is much the same thing for Tech.

Both spaces enable members to work on their own projects with tools and expertise they could never afford individually, on group projects for community benefit, and to be involved in making the use of the facilities for other people.

Meeting end times are no longer fixed, and may optionally end up in the nearby Pack Horse (SN15 3BA), on the corner of London Road and Long Close.

Chair, Maker of the Tea

Treasurer, Washer of the Dishes

Photography, Legal, Publicity
David Norfolk

Some responsibilities are still mangled up with the hackspace, until someone decides how to divide them.
