Mens’ sheds

I have read about these before and many a sheddi have asked me to post about them, and think it’s a great idea and something that should be happening in the allotments and sheds around the UK.

And have a good story about them today.

Right across Australia Mens Sheds have been popping up in small towns and communities.

They are places where retired and out of work blokes come together to share their skills and do whatever men do, in their sheds.

They get their hands dirty, talk about life, generate ideas and create something useful.

This simple idea has proven to have huge outcomes including combating men’s health problems of isolation, loneliness and depression.

and of course the very good Australian Men’s Sheds Association
