What we do and why it matters.

Most men have learned from our culture that they don’t talk about feelings and emotions many do not take an interest in their own health and well-being. Becoming a member of a Men’s Shed provides a safe and busy environment where men can find many of these things in an atmosphere of old-fashioned friendship. And, importantly, there is no pressure. Men can just come and have a chat or dig in and work on a project.

What our members say about us

I was bored. The Men’s Shed brings new friends, activities, meaning and excitement to our lives.

And when you retire without a plan for how you’ll spend your days, you can easily start to feel “underfoot” at home, bored, even depressed.  It’s a predicament I think a lot of men find themselves in nowadays.

For me the Shed is a social anchor; great for sharing ideas, life experiences, making life decisions. It’s comfortable and reassuring to belong. 

“We have this kind of male pride thing,” said Mike Jenn, 70, ‘I can look after myself. I don’t need to talk to anyone,’ and it’s a complete fallacy. Not communicating helps to kill us.”

I wish my father had had a Men’s Shed.
