A Men's Shed is a dedicated, friendly and welcoming meeting place where men come together and undertake a variety of mutually agreed activities. Men's Sheds are open to all men regardless of age, background or ability. It is a place where you can share your skills and knowledge with others, learn new skills and develop your old skills. New members are always welcome and can be assured that there is something of interest for everyone as the men have ownership of the projects and decide their own programme of events.
What a Men's Shed is not!
It is not a formal training programme but you may gain new knowledge and skills
It is not a sports club but you could play sports
It is not a health programme but your health and wellbeing might improve
It is not an information service but you can ask for info you need
It is not a service for men but activities organised by men
