Ideas evening for Cromer Men’s Shed
The drive by local Christians for a Men's Shed in Cromer is moving forward, and a social meeting will be held next month to gather ideas as to how this should progress. Tony Rothe reports.
Men's Sheds share some similarities to garden sheds — a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practise skills and enjoy making and mending. The difference is that garden sheds and their activities are often solitary in nature while Men's Sheds are the opposite.
Activities in Sheds vary greatly, but you can often find woodworking, metalworking, repairing and restoring, electronics, model buildings or even car building in a typical Shed. Sheds typically attract older men, but many have younger members and women too. Whatever the activity, the essence of a Shed is not a building, but the connections and relationships between its members.
Jess Stubenbord, one of the organisers, said “The idea of the gathering is that whilst we are looking for the right permanent venue for our Shed we can share our ideas, hopes and dreams, meet potential members and importantly drink a cup of coffee or tea with cake.”
The meeting will be held at Merchants Place, 16 Church Street, Cromer on Thursday, September 16 from 5pm to 7pm. Everyone, men and women, are warmly welcome to come along.
