A Men’s Shed is a bit like a shed at the end of a garden. It’s where men and women come together for activities involving making, mending or repairing things e.g. bikes, cars, woodworking, engineering, boat renovation etc or just a good old chat. Reclamation, reuse and restoration all feature strongly and some say this is true for the minds of the members too as well as the objects. Research shows that when Men come together to connect, converse and create, they stay healthier for longer, both mentally and physically.
Grassington Men’s Shed is a project run and managed by Grassington Hub. We currently meet weekly on Thursday’s at our shed. Membership is open to anyone in Upper Wharfedale and we’re a friendly easy going crowd, with all sorts of skills between us and a will to share them.
We are always on the lookout for any tools or equipment we can lay our hands on, so if you have any serviceable ones you wish to get rid of, please let the Hub know and we can collect them.
