Thomastown Community Network is aiming to establish a Men’s Shed in Thomastown, and has already been in contact with Gerry Walsh, the co-ordinator of the Irish Men’s Shed Assocation.
As the next step, a public meeting for all interested parties will be held in Thomastown Community Hall on Wednesday March 22, beginning at 8 p.m.
All are welcome to attend.
‘A Men’s Shed is any community-based, non-commercial organisation which is open to all men where the primary activity is the provision of a safe, friendly and inclusive environment where the men are able to gather and/or work on meaningful projects at their own pace, in their own time and in the company of other men and where the primary objective is to advance the health and well- being of the participating men. Men’s sheds may look like a shed in your back yard yet they innovatively share some characteristics of both community education and health promotion projects.’
