Kirkcaldy Men’s Shed will hold an open day to encourage new members

0

The Men’s Shed took over the former dressing room pavilion at Ravenscraig Park in February, and its members are currently renovating the premises.

Dave Stewart, who chairs the group, said the day is an opportunity to show the work that has been done to commission the facilities and restore them to usable condition.

The event is also an opportunity to show the type of activities available within the group, with demonstrations by its main technicians.

He said: “We are opening the doors of the Men’s Shed to the public to view exhibits of woodturning and calligraphy, among other things.

“Ae also wants to show people how the men’s discount is growing, because if anyone came to see it a year ago when we first had it, they’ll see quite a big improvement.”

Open every Wednesday and Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., the Men’s Shed offers people the opportunity to participate in targeted activities of their choice with the aim of combating loneliness and the physical and mental health problems associated with it.

Despite its name, Mr Stewart says the group is keen to encourage new female members – women make up around half of the current committee.

He said, “I think any group that ignores half the population will never succeed.”

The Saturday session will run from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., with refreshments and a display of completed projects undertaken by members.
