Oxted's very own Repair Shop!

The Woodhouse Craft Centre, incorporating Men in Sheds, was founded in 1971 by Betty Woodhouse – originally with the aim of providing employment for elderly and disabled people in the Oxted area. Nowadays, it’s more about social interaction and it has done wonderful things in the local community to help combat loneliness in men and women of all ages.  

A drop-in centre that’s open Monday to Thursday mornings all year round, it’s completely free and welcomes anyone from the community who wants to have a go at traditional crafts, to learn or improve their skills, or just to sit and chat for a bit of company over a cup of tea and a biscuit or two. 

They love to encourage younger people to come along and learn some skills that are no longer taught at home or in school.
