The Shed is for everyone

Research shows that being part of a supportive community and keeping active promotes happier and longer life. It's that simple. There is now a wealth of evidence that Mens Sheds, where they exist, are making a very positive difference in the lives of those who get involved.

 

The Shed movement started in Australia and now there are over 1000 there, with further Sheds in over 20 countries, including almost 100 in the UK ,

 

Mike Jenn, Chair of the UK Men's Shed movement says:

 

"Joining a Shed can sustain a man's health in later life by adding purpose and creating friendships.

 

"We share good equipment, learn from each other, and chat while pursuing hobbies, working on community projects and making things to support the Shed."

 

So what are you waiting for - we'd love you to get in touch!
