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!
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.
