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.
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 considered to be good for a person’s health and well-being.
