Sawtry Man Cave

COVID 19 Update - 04/05/22

As we learn to live safely with coronavirus (COVID-19), there are actions we can all take to help reduce the risk of catching COVID-19 and passing it on to others. These actions will also help to reduce the spread of other respiratory infections, such as flu, which can spread easily and may cause serious illness in some people.

  • Get vaccinated
  • Let fresh air in if meeting others indoors
  • Practise good hygiene, including washing your hands, covering your coughs & sneezes and cleaning your surroundings frequently
  • Wear a face covering or a face mask

If you have symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as COVID-19, and you have a high temperature or do not feel well enough to go to work or carry out normal activities, you are advised to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people.

The Man Cave is a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice new skills and to enjoy making and mending. It is all about social connections and building friendships, sharing expertise and passing on knowledge.

We are based at the back of Sawtry Community Centre, which is sited in the car park behind the Old School Hall on Green End Road (What3Words: reeling.drop.taxed). Our sessions are from 9am -12 noon Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings. For more information, please download our leaflet.

Activities currently include:

  • Replacing watch batteries
  • PAT testing electrical items
  • Woodworking - Bird boxes; insect houses; hedgehog boxes; garden planters
  • Upcycling pre-loved items

From time to time we offer items through eBay. To check out what is currently available, click on the logo to open a new tab with our eBay sales page. Why not add us to your 'Saved Sellers' for next time? Free local collection.

We also offer items for local collection via our Facebook page.

We are able to accept donations of secondhand goods for refurbishment projects only by prior arrangement, space, time and manpower allowing. Please contact us to check details and availability. If you are making such a donation and are a UK tax payer, please consider completing our Retail Gift Aid declaration form so that we can claim the tax back on the proceeds from the sale of any items you donate.

Please do not bring your donations without making contact with us first and do not leave anything outside of our workshop when we are closed. Disposal causes us a lot of trouble and expense.

Disabled access available.
