STANLEY & DISTRICT MEN'S SHED has been going for approximately 18 months. They have secured funding twice from Participatory Budgeting to help us get established. In that time we have made ourselves a proper Men's Shed, joining the Scottish Men Shed Association and United Kingdom Men's Shed.
The Men's Shed meets on a weekly basis and have a regular core of Shedder's . They have started to visit Craft Fairs to sell their wares and also promote the group for more members.
A Men’s Shed is a larger version of garden shed. A place of leisure where men come to work in a safe, friendly, and inclusive environment. They share tools, skills, and resources and work on projects of their own choosing, at their own pace, on individual and/or community projects. There are many benefits from being involved in a Men’s Shed including: social, health, skills sharing, learning and development (whatever your age!).
