Michael surprised us all last month when he came in the shed wearing his amazing personalised overalls! Made everyone chuckle at the shed and all want one now!
Men in Sheds had their own stall at the North of England Woodworking and power tool show in Harrogate last weekend. We were there to show everyone who we are and what we do and try and get some new learners. It was a very successful weekend with lots of people turning up interested about the men from the shed! In this photo we have Albert and Barry talking to some people about how the shed has changed their life and the benefits of joining Men in Sheds.
Over the last few weeks Men In Sheds has had an article in the Yorkshire evening post, featured in BBC Look North and also been on BBC Radio Leeds talking about the advantages of socialising and what to do when retired. Here we have Denis who featured in the Yorkshire Evening Post with his chessboard, and the young apprentice Ollie with Dean when he was on BBC Radio Leeds.
With very short notice the BBC Look North reporter, Shirley Henry, visited us on Monday to film the goings on at the shed. Professor Alan White, a specialist in Men’s Health, also came down. He really helped to highlight the value of the shed and how this project can help address many issues that men face.
