How the Men's Shed movement has changed lives

A great article in the Aberdeen Press and Journal focuses on the great work done by Scottish Sheds. Here's a snippet:
Cullen Men’s Shed began just 10 months ago, following encouragement from the local community council. With more than a dozen members turning out each week, secretary of the Men’s Shed Alistair Wheelhouse said it has helped improve the health and wellbeing of various residents. He said: “It makes the community a better place because people are getting more and more involved. We have about 20 members overall down there, eight of them are veterans and ex-forces people. They are the folk Men’s Sheds are really about. They were in their homes feeling a little lonely, not doing anything and here was a reason to chat.”
Also well worth a look is the latest issue of The Scottish Shedder with many features on shedlife around Scotland. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
