 Membership is open to any interested person.

The group meet regularly at the Mens’ Shed and they welcome any new members who wish to join them in this endeavour.  Your input is only as much as you are able to give, from moral support, to heavy physical work and anything in between.  Those with computer skills will have a chance to use them, as will those who simply want to have a coffee, within a social atmosphere.  Membership reinforces the need for such a group, so support these men in their endeavour to provide a great place for meeting, learning and fellowship.
