Halswell MenzShed is a community-based, non-profit, non-commercial organization that is accessible to all men. Their primary activity is the provision of a safe and friendly environment where men are able to work on meaningful projects at their own pace in their own time in the company of other men. If you looked inside, you might see a number of men restoring furniture, perhaps restoring bicycles for a local school, maybe fixing lawn mowers or making a kids play house for a pre School Centre. You might also see a few young men working with the older men learning new skills and maybe also learning something about life from the men they work with. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, you will see members assisting disabled and autistic guys with their own projects. You will see tea-bags, coffee cups and a comfortable area where men can sit and talk.
