Ashgrove The Gaps Mens Shed

MEN’S SHEDS. I was invited to the Ashgrove The Gap Men’s Shed this morning. It was INCREDIBLE. Men supporting men, empowering one another, teaching one another new skills, talking, friendship and community. It’s not just making & restoring furniture. There are walking groups, books clubs and discussion group. There was a group of 25 men discussing local and international issues – men who would probably have said they don’t “public speak” – NOW they do. There are so many health and community benefits. Imagine a Men’s Shed in every community…. Image if every employer allowed their employees to attend one morning a week… Imagine if every Local Plan included funding a Men’s Shed….
