The common theme in all Sheds is about men feeling useful and contributing again to their communities, learning or sharing their skills and making friends.
Men’s Sheds are fast being recognized as vital, viable places to accommodate these needs and provide relaxed, happy creative spaces for men of all ages to enjoy. They provide activity, identity and meaning for vast numbers of older, unemployed, job-redundant, ‘downsized’, isolated, depressed and happily retired, active, creative, enthusiastic men. The Growing Problems with men’s health, isolation loneliness and depression are looming as major health issues. Men’s Sheds can play a significant and practical role in addressing these.
Activities within the Men’s Shed are many and varied:
Woodwork and metal working. The shed is very fortunate to have a large range of modern equipment and tools for our members to use. we even have a vehicle hoist which allows members to service or work on their vehicles.
Never used power tools? Skilled members will show you how!
Having Fun, sharing, show and tell, a great way to get yourself back on track. The Sorell Men’s Shed is where skilled and unskilled men can share time with each other, or just sit around the wood heater, enjoying a cuppa and swapping yarns.
