Men’s Shed Network Meeting – Hellingly – Monday 26th March 10am to 12pm

Action in rural Sussex, through their Village Agents Team and with funding from East Sussex County Council’s  chances4change project, supported the start-up of a new shed by Vitality Villages in the Hellingly and Herstmonceux area of Wealden.


The Men’s Shed concept started in the 1980s and 90s in Australia to offer men the opportunity to ‘potter’ much as they would in their own garden shed. The difference being that they would not be alone. The ability for men to share their skills, learn from others, undertake small and not so small projects in the company of other men is central to the philosophy of the Men’s Shed movement. As a result the idea has spread and, according to the UK Men’s Shed Association, there are now over 400 men’s sheds up and running in the UK.
