About Us


Dyce Men's Shed is an informal meeting place where you can socialise with others and share interests. Whether you enjoy indoor sports, board games, regular socialising or even making things, there's something for you here.

The Men's Shed provides an easy way to pass a few mornings a week in pleasant company, with some like-minded folk.

Your initial visit will be free. Subsequent visits cost only £1.50 per session.
Tea and coffee facilities are free, but members are requested to wash any cups, plates and cutlery that they might use before leaving a session.

Dyce Men's Shed meets on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, from 0930 to 1300 (generally finishing around 1230).

Our aims and rules can be inspected on the 'Constitution' page (awaiting addition of updated Constitution).

Dyce Men's Shed is based at the Dyce Community Centre, which is a part of  Dyce Primary School, in Gordon Terrace, Dyce. See map on this page for  car parking and building access directions. Please note that the car park operates a one-way system. Turn left on entering and proceed clockwise to find a parking space. You can get a better idea of our location relative to Dyce area by checking the larger map on the 'Contacts' page.

On an agreed rota basis, an authorised person obtains keys to open the Men's Shed rooms and also locks up at the end of each session, leaving the keys with the Community Office.

(The full title is 'Dyce and District Men's Shed', but it's generally shortened to 'Dyce Men's Shed' for convenience.)

What We Do

Safety Matters


The Men's Shed Committee has issued guidelines as detailed below. Please read them carefully and understand how they apply to you.

SAFETY GUIDELINES

LEVEL 1 

These apply to all members and visitors

  • Please ensure that you have familiarised yourself with the Emergency Evacuation Procedure and Exit Routes as shown on wall charts near the doors.

  • If in doubt, please enquire of committee members.


LEVEL 2

These apply to members while within the Workshop Area using battery-operated and hand-tools only

When using hand tools or battery-operated tools within the workshop:

  • Two members must be present, one being a Duty Supervisor

  • When unoccupied, even for a short time, the workshop door to the corridor should be locked closed, to prevent unauthorised entry

  •  Suitable personal protective equipment (PPE) should be used. Typically, this could involve a dust mask, safety glasses and/or ear defenders. (Please ask if you are unsure).

  • Battery-powered tools should only be used if you have been authorised in terms of Level 3.

  • You should have demonstrated your competency in the use, care and handling of all hand tools, especially those that have sharp blades or parts.


LEVEL 3

These apply to members using mains-powered tools within the workshop

  • You must be conversant with the requirements of Level 1 and Level 2

  • You must have been shown the switching and emergency isolation procedures for the workshop power circuit.

  • No machinery may be operated until you have satisfied a competent person (please ask) that you are able to do so, safely and competently, without causing injury to yourself or other members, or causing damage to the machine.

  • Your competency on each machine will be recorded on your personal Membership form and on the Members' Wall-chart

  • The Duty Supervisor has the right to stop your activity if it is judged that workshop safety is being compromised. Your use of equipment is held to confirm your acceptance of this supervisory authority.

    NB
    Should your behaviour fail to comply with the above requirements, the Committee may restrict, refuse or revoke your membership of the Men's Shed, in order to comply with the requirements of the associated insurance provision.
