Scottish ‘Men’s Shed of the Year’ 2020

There is more than one Shed of the Year competition nowadays and the latest winner of Scottish ‘Men’s Shed of the Year’ organised by the Scottish Men’s Sheds Association (SMSA) is The Inverclyde Shed has been crowned Scottish ‘Men’s Shed of the Year’ 2020. The two other shortlisted finalists were Garnock Valley Men’s Shed, and Kinross & District Men’s Shed. 

“We are absolutely delighted to have won this prestigious award and title," said Chairman of The Inverclyde Shed, Bruce Newlands. "This shows a huge vote of confidence that there are really good people doing some really great things here in Inverclyde! It must be recognised that, although this is a competition, there is absolutely no rivalry with our fellow Men’s Sheds. Sheds are all at different stages and sizes and we have only been inspired, encouraged and supported by other Sheds to implement activities and ideas that have worked for them. We invested in a 3D printer after hearing about Kinross & District Men’s Shed creating face visors for frontline workers and launched a carving club after hearing about the success of the modellers’ club offering at Garnock Valley Men’s Shed.  This award showcases the great work being carried out by Sheds across Scotland so we can share knowledge and ideas to improve the health and wellbeing of the men in our communities.”
