OUR MEN'S SHED
Objects of Men's Shed's
1) The objects of the Shed are to advance the health and well-being of our members by providing a safe and happy environment where skilled and unskilled men can, in the company of other men,
(a) Pursue hobbies, pastimes and interests
(b) Learn new skills, practice and pass on old skills
(c) Learn about their own and other men’s health and well-being
(d) By their efforts, contribute to their families, their friends, the Shed and their community
(e) Mentor younger men
We started as a steering committe in November 2008 having identified a need for a Men's Shed in the area.
After a lot of hard work the Shed was officially opened in February 2011
The name relates to the area postcode of 2322 and that is the area we encompass.
The Shed was established with the aim of providing men with a place to be productive, establish new relationships and even just somewhere to have a cup of tea and a chat with someone.
Newcastle City Council have allowed us to occupy what was formerly the local tennis club at Beresfield. The premises are not ideal for our purposes but surprisingly we manage to create items for the local community when we are asked to. Not having a dedicated shed limits our ability to make multiple items for sale and this is where we are missing out on an income stream
