Merry Christmas 2021!

The staff and trustees would like to wish all our volunteer Ambassadors, Supporters, Partners and Shedders a Merry Christmas. As has been the case since the start of 2020, there has been a terrible cost to life and mental health; but we have seen more Sheds re-opening and we even saw a number of new Sheds opening for the first time.  Each Shed providing a massive impact in their communities and to the Shedders and members who attend.

We currently are living in unprecedented times, and as merry as Christmas can be for some, we know it may bring loneliness and isolation for others, this Christmas maybe more than most.

Although the UK Men’s Sheds office is now closed until Tuesday 4th January, there are other organisations who are out there to help. Your mental health matters, so please do contact them out if you need someone to listen this festive season.
