Midsomer Norton Men’s Shed to Open on Tuesdays in Addition to Fridays

Men’s Shed are delighted to say that we are now, in response to Shedders’ requests, opening the Shed on Tuesdays 09:30 until 14:30. The first Tuesday session takes place 3rd July.

We can offer tea/coffee, companionship, a place to natter, relax and possibly (if you feel so inclined) a place to make/repair things.

It would be great to see you at either (or both) sessions.

If you would like more information then email midsomermensshed@gmail.com or simply ring 07818 420685.

Midsomer Men’s Shed Launch

The Midsomer Men’s Shed Project, part of Midsomer Norton Community Trust, have set a date for their launch of Friday 1st June, 1pm, at Farrington Farm Shop – located behind the Café. A warm welcome is being extended to anyone interested in becoming a ‘Shedder’.

“The Shed will provide a place for men and women to come together where they can work on their own or community DIY projects – anything from making a garden planter to repairing a chair. As much as the work in hand, it’s being together – working shoulder to shoulder and enjoying the company of others”, said Richard Jordan, Community Trust Trustee for the Men’s Shed Project.

The Men’s Shed concept started in Australia where they have been amazingly successful over the last 12 years – to the point where there are 900 sheds across the country. The Australian government has recognised the mental health benefits of Men’s Sheds and now provide them with funding from the savings made from the reduced calls on their health service.

Men’s Sheds are now setting up all over the UK and as such it’s great to see that once again our area is at the cutting edge. Membership is open to anyone over the age of 18 and costs £5.00 per annum and £3.00 per visit to the shed. To begin with the Shed will be open each Friday from 9am to 1pm at Farrington Farm shop.

If you would like to join email midsomermensshed@gmail.com or simply ring 07818 420685. The Shed will be running a series of open mornings where you can find out more.
