“A Men’s Shed is any community-based, non-commercial organisation which is open to all men where the primary activity is the provision of a safe, friendly and inclusive environment where the men are able to gather and/or work on meaningful projects at their own pace, in their own time and in the company of other men and where the primary objective is to advance the health and well- being of the participating men. Men’s sheds may look like a shed in your back yard, yet they are innovative and share some characteristics of both community education and health promotion projects.” – http://menssheds.ie/
The Mens Shed in Kells is just getting off the ground but we already have over 30 members. We have an active committee that meet every week with the main goal for now being gaining a permanent premises for the Shed to live. Until a premises has been found, Kells Peoples Resource Centre have generously allowed us to have our committee and public meetings on their premises.
If you are interested in finding out more or becoming a member, you can reach us either in the Resource Centre or on our brand new Facebook page!
