Lutterworth Men in Sheds Project to Expand
The ‘Men in Sheds’ project at The Enterprise Centre in Lutterworth started in January and has proved such a success that the Centre has decided to start a new group meeting between 4pm to 6pm each Wednesday from 24th May.
The ‘Shed’ is the woodworking facility at the Centre which has an extensive range of woodworking tools and equipment and currently used by the ‘shedders’ from 4-6pm every Monday at a cost of just £1 per session.
The original Men in Sheds project was an innovative idea by Age UK using woodwork and other activities to support older men which started in April 2010. The current project is supported by the Harborough District Council.
Centre manager, Jane Beaumont, said. ”We have been very pleased with the response and feedback from the Shedders who enjoy the camaraderie within the group whilst learning new skills and helping each other. They especially welcome new members at any level of skill. ”
Following a successful summer school last year there will be two options in 2017 starting 24th and 31st July, each will be for four days with 11-14 year olds choosing arts and crafts, cooking or woodwork and includes a trip out.
Anyone who is interested should contact the centre: email@example.com or by telephone 01455 557085.
