The award-winning Men in Sheds project, which provides a meeting place and workshop to men over the age of 55, have opened a shed in Penge.
Over the last few months, Penge's founder shed members have transformed the former empty premises in Kingsdale House, Kingsdale Road into a pleasant space and workshop.
There they have been making planters, bird boxes, leather belts and more.
Bromley mayor Councillor Ernest Noad joined 'shedders' from Penge and Eltham and workers from Age UK Bromley and Greenwich yesterday (February 26).
Maureen Falloon, Director of Age UK Bromley and Greenwich said: "We see, every day, the benefits that coming to the shed gives to its members - a sense of purpose and friendship are key, but it can also help them cope with major life changes such as retirement, ageing bereavement.
"We hope the official opening has raised awareness of the award winning Men in Sheds project and inspire other men to join the Penge shed."
Anyone interested in joining the Penge shed should call 020 8294 3017.
