Moseley & Kings Heath Shed
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing away of Larry Potter. Larry was a founder member of the Moseley & Kings Heath Shed, and a lead instructor in the glass activity groups. Larry was a wonderful teacher and a lovely man who will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all his family and friends.
A Place To Belong
Welcome to The Shed! 😊
Based on the Men’s Shed model from Australia, The Shed has proven to be an effective way of helping reduce loneliness, isolation and social exclusion in older men and women.
This charity is an entirely self-funded member-run organisation, dedicated to fostering a sense of community – providing a safe space to be creative and connect with other people.
The Moseley & Kings Heath Shed is based in Kings Heath Park, behind the ‘White House’, or to be more accurate Cartland House. Please find us here. Link to Google Maps.
If you’re in retirement, whether voluntarily, or forced on you, if you’ve been out of work for longer than you care to recall, or if you’re just bored out of your mind with your own company, then please read on!
This ‘shed’ is a ‘membership organisation’. It’s a self-funding charity where members have a say in what we do and the programme of activities. In other words, it’s YOUR SHED! To get involved as a volunteers, please click here.
By organising a variety of activities that cater to the interests and abilities of seniors, we can provide a valuable resource that helps our members to stay active, engaged, and connected to their community. Currently, we have five group activities. You can call or email us anytime if you are interested to book a course here.
Discover a place to connect, a community to belong to and people that make it all worthwhile.
Don’t take our word for it!
“I’ve been coming for 5 years. I live down the road and it gives me something to do. I’ve always been into crafts so having these workshops is great. The amount of things you can make is never-ending and everyone is always so lovely”

“These workshops are the highlight of my week. I always look forward to them and I’m so glad I joined. Everyone is so welcoming and the amount of support from the team is amazing”
