HCGA has launched a new Men in Sheds project, supported by Community Champions, meeting at Godolphin Gardens on Wednesday mornings, 10am – 1pm. Men who participate are free to work on their own projects such as woodwork, bike maintenance, gardening etc. We have purchased bike maintenance equipment as several participants are interested in this. We are also running taster sessions on Saturday mornings in September. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
What is a Men’s Shed? (taken from the Men in Sheds Association website)
A Men’s Shed is a larger version of the typical man’s shed in the garden – a place where he feels at home and pursues practical interests with a high degree of autonomy. A Men’s Shed offers this to a group of such men where members share the tools and resources they need to work on projects of their own choosing at their own pace and in a safe, friendly and inclusive venue. They are places of skill-sharing and informal learning, of individual pursuits and community projects, of purpose, achievement and social interaction. A place of leisure where men come together to work.
