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, Metalwork, Restoration of machinery and relics from the past for placement in the Museum. The shed last year purchased a 10 metre poly gardening tunnel allowing members the opportunity to grow throughout the year.
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 and Heritage Museum 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.
If you have a skill or hobby you would like to pass on to others, or you would like to learn, or even donate something old to our restoration project, come along or call us on the number below.
