Calling all Cranleigh men!


Share tools and resources as you work on projects with the group. Born out of an earlier reminiscence project at Cranleigh Arts Centre and part of a national scheme, the Cranleigh Men’s Shed is a place of skill-sharing and informal learning, of individual pursuits and community projects, of purpose, achievement and social interaction.


If you are interested in getting involved, contact the Box Office on 01483 278000.
