News in brief from around the local churches
A Men’s Shed is starting up in Rutherglen Baptist Community Church.
The Men’s Shed Association started in Australia a few years ago and has spread across the world.
The objective of Men’s Shed is to give men who have time on their hands a place to meet.
Most men have a lifetime of skills behind them and they want to pass on these skills and show others what can be achieved.
Don’t worry, though, if you have no practical skills.
A workshop area will be built at one end of the hall with a relaxation area available to sit and chat and put the world to rights over a cup of tea.
Being part of a Men’s Shed is good for your health and well-being.
It is about having a laugh, enjoying the banter and the company of other men.
If you would like to be part of this exciting project please call in any Thursday between 10 am and 4pm to the upstairs hall at Rutherglen Baptist Community Church, 72 Greenhill Road, Rutherglen or call Ron Taylor on 07821137069 for more information.
