Men’s Sheds

mens-sheds-logoAt the Thrive2020 conference of Mon 10 Oct 2016, Patrick Abrahams spoke about the Men’s Sheds initiative which has over 350 sheds in the UK, 900+ in Australia and more beyond.

These ‘sheds’ are workspaces where men (and women) can gather to build and repair projects for themselves or others in the community.  There’s also a emphasis on tea drinking!  :)

It overlaps hugely with what we’re planning for Makerspace Guernsey so his talk has given us renewed vigour to get a venue sorted out and get going.  Thank you Patrick!
