We meet during the week at 15 Abbey Place.
We are part of 'BVOPS' Border Voluntary Older Peoples Services and have established ourselves as part of the Men's Shed movement which is huge in Australia, New Zealand and Ireland and also rapidly expanding throughout the UK.
We got together as a small group of men from a variety of different backgrounds wishing to take part in various DIY projects and hobbies. The sharing of our skills and ideas together with the camaraderie and company of similar like minded men, has created an atmosphere in which we help and motivate each other.
We are aimed mainly at men who have some spare time on their hands and wish to keep themselves motivated and busy. There are huge health benefits in taking part in this type of activity for those who are retired, or between jobs right now or perhaps those who have taken early retirement and are wanting to keep themselves focused.
Whatever your reason, if you think you would like to come along and join us, you are more than welcome. See the place, meet the rest of the 'Shedders' and have a cuppa, then decide whether it is for you.
Why not pop in on either a Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon between 1-4 or give Trevor a call on 01835 830625
