You are cordially invited to a public meeting to look into setting up a Men’s Shed in Duns. The meeting will be held at the Volunteer Hall at 7.30pm on Wednesday 15 February.
What is a Men’s Shed? It is a place where a man who has time on his hands can go to make things, use tools, relax and make friends. The aim is to help men improve their health, address issues such as social isolation, and play their part in community development. Some 1,500 such projects have been set up around the world, with over 70 in Scotland, including in several towns in the Borders. You can find out more at the website of the Scottish Men’s Sheds Association and in an article from Volunteer Centre Borders.
This initial meeting is to explore possibilities and to form a plan to set up a similar project in Duns. It would be great to have your input and help!
If you would like to attend the meeting (or if you can’t attend but would like to be involved) please send an email to Eddy Richards at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lastly, please feel free to pass on this invitation to anyone you think might like to see a Men’s Shed in Duns.
