Many people seem to think a Men’s Shed is just for retired men who like DIY. Well, it’s not: everyone is equally important, and we especially look after
members who need a bit of help.
There’s a social side to Seiriol Men’s Shed. We’re working on it: darts and dominoes, cards, scrabble and, of course, tea, coffee and chat with an occasional trip out to see something of interest. It’s not only for retired men; men of any age who enjoy company and have a little time on their hands are welcome, especially if they know how to work a computer!
At Seiriol Men’s Shed we’re working hard at the moment to put things in place so that we can accommodate wheelchair-users and men with mobility
and other problems. We now have a tidy and well-equipped workshop, and our focus has moved to painting and sorting out a room where men can relax and chat in comfortable seating.
Another room will be for art and craft projects: painting, drawing, model-making, pottery and whatever takes a member’s fancy.
A Men’s Shed is owned and run by its members, and it’s said that the single most important item is a kettle. We try to be self-sufficient, but we cannot escape overheads like insurance, and need a little help from a grant occasionally.
We meet on a Thursday between 10.00am and 12.00 noon, and often on other days by arrangement. Come and see us, or phone Mike Thomas on 07941 103386.
