Stonehaven Men’s Shed is celebrating after funding was awarded to their community shed space from the Asda Foundation.

A total of £350 has been awarded to the Men’s Shed, where people can come together to take part in practical skills and activities. They are designed and run by their members and provide opportunities for people to share tools, resources and skills in order to create, learn and develop social networks.

Despite being in its early stages, the Stonehaven & District Men’s Shed has already got the community behind it. Having held three information meetings to generate interest, the free membership is already at 120 and is set to rise. The charity is continuingly updating its members on progress to secure premises which will hopefully be open five days a week if support continues to grow.
