There are now many Totton Area Men’s Shed members who, in the past, have attended our events on a regular basis. Friendships were made and support networks were created.
Everyone, over 18 (both men and women), is welcome. Many of the “shedders” are men aged over 55 years, some of whom live alone, and many have long term health conditions. This group of older men are often reluctant to join other local activities. Even without a ‘shed’ the Totton Area Men’s Shed has attracted the interest of over 100 local men, many of whom have taken part in its activities.
We expect this to increase substantially now that the ‘shed’ is open!
The Totton Men’s shed is owned and run by the Totton & Eling Community Association. The Shed has a small committee who ensure that the it is safely run and complies fully with the Charity Commission rules. We are also putting together a group of ‘Session Managers’ who are needed to ensure the safe running when the shed is open.
