Street Mens Shed -
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 and chat.
The aim of the Street Men's Shed is to promote Heath and Wellbeing in the community of Street & Glastonbury, to help reduce the feeling of loneliness and isolation encountered by older people in the community while giving the members a chance to learn new skills, teach others new skills and work on their projects or projects for the benefit of our community.
