Men’s shed opens doors for women, wider use

Recent stories

The Denmark Men’s Shed will hold an information evening on Thursday, July 7 to gauge the interest in setting up and supporting a women’s group or hub at the shed.

The meeting is planned for 6pm at the Men’s Shed, 2D Inlet Drive, opposite the Rivermouth Caravan Park.

The meeting will be aimed at women who may be interested in doing or learning how to do some woodwork and how to use common, or less common, tools and machines.

They may also be interested in getting out of their comfort zone to fix small household problems.

Other options include handiwork or just chatting over a cuppa. Trainers with decades of experience are available to help the women get started.

Denmark Men’s Shed has operated for nearly seven years.

Generous funding from several sources and fundraising by members has enabled the construction of the shed and the workshop is now fully operational.

The Men’s Shed aims to improve men’s health by providing a supportive network based on values of care, respect, dignity and fellowship.

There is an intergenerational membership of more than 60.

The shed was always envisaged to be a community asset, available to be used by community groups and others when not in use by the members.
