UK Men's Sheds Association officially launched

Although it's been kind of up and running since March, the UK Men's Sheds Association was officially launched today - click here to read our extensive coverage on Shedworking on the subject and organiser Mike Jenn has also written a marvellous piece about the importance of Men's Sheds in the Guardian today. But in brief here is their own description:
A Men's Shed is a larger version of the typical man’s shed in the garden – a place where he feels at home and pursues practical interests with a high degree of autonomy. A Men's Shed offers this to a group of such men where members share the tools and resources they need to work on projects of their own choosing at their own pace and in a safe, friendly and inclusive venue. They are places of skill-sharing and informal learning, of individual pursuits and community projects, of purpose, achievement and social interaction. A place of leisure where men come together to work.
It's well worth having a look around their site where there are lists of sheds up and running already around the UK, a list of events and advice on how to get started. Well worth a browse. -----------------------------------------------------
