New project open to older men in Southwark.

The rain didn't stop members of the Men's Shed and our London handyperson service building a brand-new Men's Shed shed at our Darwin Court centre near Elephant and Castle.

Building blocks: The Men's Shed concept started in Australia

Open to men aged 50 and over, the shed is an informal place for older men to socialise, share skills and pursue practical interests such as woodworking or metalworking.

"We are always on the look out for new members to the sheds, and are interested to know if anyone knows of an activity that could work in the space," says Alys Exley, project coordinator. For details of the next Men's Shed activity, contact Darwin Court.

Now open:
There are more than 60 Men's Sheds across the UK
