What is the New Milton Men's Shed?
Men’s Sheds (or Sheds) are like garden sheds; a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice skills and enjoy making and mending. The difference is that garden sheds and their activities are often solitary in nature while Men’s Sheds are the opposite. They’re about social connections and friendship building, sharing skills and knowledge, and of course a lot of laughter – the New Milton Men’s Shed exists to provide a safe and friendly environment, for people to come together in order to promote the health and wellbeing of all its members.
The workshop is FREE but donations to the Men's Shed will be greatly appreciated. Fix It Cafés are funded by Hampshire County Council.
