In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.


Thistle Foundation

The Thistle Shed is a place for men to come together, socialise and take part in activities of their choice.

The Shed started out as part of our support for veterans work when it first opened in February 2016. However, the veteran members soon decided they wanted the group to be open to all men.

Some of the activities the guys have tried include woodworking projects, organising our ‘Shed Library’ and air fix model painting - and we’re always looking for new skills and ideas to be brought along!

The Thistle Shed runs on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1:00pm - 4:00pm.

Anyone wanting to join can pop along for a visit or, for more information, contact Claire Cumming on 07471 030 957 or
