Stretford Shedders

FOVPS are starting our own Stretford Shedders group, and would like to hear from anyone (male or female) interested in joining, or anyone who might know someone who might benefit. No particular skills or experience needed but a willingness to attend a first meeting to get a sense of the needs and interests of the group so we are able to develop a suitable workshop and a suitable timetable.

As you may be aware Victoria Park has big ambitions to be a vibrant community space for local people to engage, be active and connect. Older men are especially at risk of isolation as they retire or become widowed but can thrive when given the opportunity for activity, creativity and social interaction.

“Mens Sheds” have been set up across the UK to address this issue and have become incredibly popular. They are similar to garden sheds – a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice skills and enjoy making and mending but also to meet and socialise, and, lets face it, have a brew and a biscuit!That’s why we’re starting our own Stretford Shedders group, and would like to hear from anyone (male or female) interested in joining, or anyone who might know someone who might benefit. No particular skills or experience needed but a willingness to attend a first meeting to get a sense of the needs and interests of the group so we are able to develop a suitable workshop and a suitable timetable.

To join now gives you a say in what the group will look like, when sessions are run and what activities (and biscuits!) are on offer.
