Anyone can drop by to say hello and find out what goes on. If a group wants to come, this must be arranged in advance please.

Sheds run from 10am to about 1.30pm.

  • Monday Staithes Men’s Shed : rear of Staithes Sports & Social Club
  • Tuesday Sleights Area Men’s Shed : rear of Littlebeck Methodist Chapel
    Whitby Men’s Shed : Eskmouth Scout Hall off Spring Hill
