Men with hands in pockets, you know something important is being discussed. Could this workshop space @Wastesavers be the venue for a Men's Shed in #Newport? Local men contact chris.southern @mensshedscymru.co.uk to find out more. https://t.co/T8f3VlLWLQ MensShedsCymru photo

Men's Sheds Cymru

Every single person who hears about the Men's Sheds movement immediately confirms that it is a wonderful thing. If you're not personally interested we can guarantee that you know someone or have somebody close to you that would love the opportunity to be part of a Men's Shed. So what exactly is a Men's Shed? Essentially it is a Social Enterprise set up by Men for Men, and it's all about tackling the growing problem of isolation in our male population. There are a great deal of men out there with lots of time on their hands and a great deal still to offer. This is a chance for men within communities to come together, join or set up a Shed of their own and enjoy being around other males, talking, dreaming, playing, planning, creating, fixing, building, changing and growing. No two sheds are the same and what goes on in a shed is determined by the people who belong to it. A Shed is it's own unique, self supporting social enterprise with its own governance, constitution and ethos. There are currently around 2000 sheds in Australia, 200 sheds in Ireland and many emerging sheds across Europe. We, as the Association of Wales are here to support existing Sheds and Shedders, Advocate the potential of new Sheds and support those who wish to join or start Sheds. The model promotes "health by stealth" and generally enhances the well-being of all males involved who gain a sense of belonging and purpose, feel useful, connected and a part of their community again. Sheds are outward facing and often engage in activity that benefits the areas they're in. Its a win-win situation. So, there it is in a nutshell. The movement is new to Wales and this is a period of enormous potential and rapid growth. Be a part of it! Shed happens. Get in touch with us to find a shed near you.... if there isn't one, we'll help you start one! We're looking forward to hearing from you. Team Men's Sheds Cymru.

Angelsharks are still very rare in #Welsh waters, so gathering old photographs, memories and records of when #Angelsharks used to be caught is vital to better understand and safeguard this species today. Each record is like gold dust, so we need YOUR help to discover the story of this rare shark and its Welsh connection!

- Share your Angelshark stories, memories or photos.

- Volunteer with our History of Angels research project, to unearth clues in local libraries, archives and museums.

- Join the Angelshark History Roadshow as it travels around Wales from January-March 2019.

Contact us if you want to take part: angelsharks@zsl.org or 07918 361828 or www.angelsharknetwork.com/wales
