Every man needs a shed

By Dave Whelan

IT'S time to shed some light on what men actually do when they take themselves off to back garden isolation.

It has been said that every man needs a shed and now men 55 and over living in north Belfast have their very own Men's Shed to belong to.

As part of the Reaching Out Connecting Older People programme co-ordinated by the North Belfast Partnership and funded by the Big Lottery Fund local men have redecorated and refurbished the venue on Duncairn Gardens.

Officially opened by local comedian Tim McGarry the shed will offer men the opportunity to try their hand at a range of hobbies, and help promote inclusion.

The Shed will be open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 10am – 4pm. An open day will be held on Monday, November 4, 10am – 3pm. For details call 90752990.
