MEN’S SHED GROUP TO CONTINUE AT CENTRE BUT NEEDS WORKSHOP SPACE FOR MACHINERY

Men’s Shed taster sessions have been running weekly at the Henhayes Community Centre. They have proved that there is considerable interest in setting up a ‘shed’ group in Crewkerne. While the centre offers space for assembling and finishing small wooden items, it does not have the space for workshop machinery. Rosemary Prince, chair of the Trustees at Henhayes Centre said: “The group will continue to meet at the centre on a Wednesday morning until suitable premises can be found.”

The Men’s Shed meetings take place between 10 am until 12 noon and include a hot drink. Projects which the group are planning to work on include making and decorating bird boxes for the local wildlife and garden planters. The Henhayes Centre have been working in association with Duncan Richards of the Community Shed Project. The Men’s Shed allows people to form new friendships and helps to reduce isolation and relieve loneliness. It is like a bigger version of a garden shed, where men generally get together rather than work alone, to make and mend things, to support the local community. If anyone can recommend a potential space, approximately the size of a double garage, please contact the Henhayes Centre on 01460 74340 or email henhayescentre@btconnect.com
