HENLEY MEN’S SHED
“Blokes being blokes – together”
that is just one of the many ways to describe what’s going on at the Men’s Shed.
The concept of what a man does in his shed in the backyard is brought into a community setting, so adding the ability to socialise and form new friendships.
Those who join the Henley Men’s Shed can share & develop skills, make or repair things, relate experiences, discuss health and other issues, talk about anything while enjoying a cuppa & biscuit or even another blokes scones.
Aimed mainly at retired and older men in the community, the Men’s Shed has proven to be a great place to break the boredom that is often associated with extra spare time resulting from major life changes such as downsizing the family home, loss of a partner or retirement.
The Men’s Shed is run as a relaxed social environment where Men can just call in when they want, stay as long as they want and do something or nothing.
You will see blokes repairing things for home, or making a new item or a toy for the grandkids, sitting in on a talk over an issue important to men, or joining a small team doing a community project. So many things to do at the Men’s Shed – no wonder it’s so popular.
You will find the Henley Mens Shed at the Henley Lake complex 100 metres south of the main gates on Colombo Road, Masterton
