The Men’s Shed is a traditional vinery packing shed that we’re bringing back to health. Once finished, the Shed will provide any man in Guernsey a space to go and work on any project in a welcoming and well equipped workshop.

Shed activities might involve making or mending in woodwork, metalwork, growing, bike repair, electronics, tool renovation, boat building, model engineering …anything you like!

Women, fret not! We’re co-located and co-creating with Makerspace Guernsey so everyone can gain from the facilities on offer!

UK Men's Shed Association

A Men's Shed is a larger version of the typical man’s shed in the garden – a place where he feels at home and pursues practical interests with a high degree of autonomy. A Men's Shed offers this to a group of such men where members share the tools and resources they need to work on projects of their own choosing at their own pace and in a safe, friendly and inclusive venue. They are places of skill-sharing and informal learning, of individual pursuits and community projects, of purpose, achievement and social interaction. A place of leisure where men come together to work.

We are very grateful to MUG who are sponsoring the first Men’s Shed in Guernsey - the ‘MUG Men’s Shed’.

“Male Uprising Guernsey aims to get men, whatever their age, to be more confident, outgoing and questioning of their health symptoms. Most importantly, we encourage men to seek medical advice and assistance at the earliest opportunity - as procrastination or delays can have deadly consequences.”

Men’s Sheds have received quite a lot of TV coverage of the recent months. Here’s an excellent piece by the BBC on a Men's Shed in the Cotswolds.

Happily, we’re now registered with the UK Men’s Shed Association!
