Men's Sheds Cymru
A National Lottery Community Fund project. We help to develop new groups and support existing Men's Sheds across Wales.
Men’s Sheds Cymru have been invited to a Facebook Live” discussion with the Chair of the Committee, Dr Dai Lloyd AM on 25th January 2017 to coincide with the launch of an inquiry on Isolation and Loneliness in Wales. The aim of the inquiry is to assess the extent and impact of loneliness and isolation in Wales with a focus on but not limited to older people.
It will also look at the scale and causes of the problems of isolation and loneliness, the impact in terms of physical and mental health and wellbeing and ways of addressing the problem.
Doc1Brendan Somers the current Mayor of Aberystwyth has the aim of creating a new Men’s Shed in Aberystwyth and more in the district if there is a demand. Men in Borth, further along the coast have already shown interest. Brendan will be putting out flyers around the town and will hold an open meeting as soon as a small core of “shedders” has been formed. If you are interested contact Brendan on 07473 740892 email: firstname.lastname@example.org or let us have your details.
Hoping to have a chance to talk on the Wynne Evans show about the progress made by the Men’s Sheds Cymru project and the difference to individuals who are now regular ‘shed’ members. If it does not happen on 18th January 2017, hope to be invited to another slot in the near future. Listen in if you get a chance. We should be talking at about 11:30 am
Paul Smith of the National Botanic Garden of Wales has made contact to find out how the Garden and Men’s Sheds could work together.
Men’s Sheds have the opportunity to hold events at the Garden take up education, science or find out how to cultivate.
If you have any ideas to promote contact Men’s Sheds or email@example.com
