Men working with tools


​​In a traditional sense, men have often had sheds in their gardens. Men's Shed aims to provide a more social and less isolating environment for men of all ages and backgrounds to get together and work on projects, talk or simply relax. Men's Shed is a safe and busy environment where men can do the things they enjoy (whatever they may be) in an atmosphere of old-fashioned mateship.

Get involved

You will need to pay a fee and complete an induction before you start. Members can then attend on any day that the facility is open, for any length of time.

Please note that members will need to be accredited in the use of the various tools and machines prior to commencing work on group or individual projects, however, the Shed can help with this.
