Leader meets local Men’s Shed members at International Men’s Day event
The gentlemen from the Kings Worthy Community Shed, who’ve been supported by our Grants and Neighbourhood Services teams, welcomed all to their Shed yesterday for coffee and cake at their International Men's Day event, including Winchester City Council Leader Cllr Martin Tod.
Cllr Tod said: “It was great to visit the Community Shed in Kings Worthy for their International Men's Day event. They've created a warm and welcoming place for men to come together, support each other and work on projects for the community. Men don't always want to talk about things face-to-face - sometimes shoulder-to-shoulder is easier - and sheds like the Kingsworthy Community Shed provide a great place for that.
“We are keen to support local organisations that support community mental health and well-being through our grant funding schemes - as we have the Kingsworthy Shed. I look forward to them continuing to provide their valuable support and contribution to the community for many years to come."
There are also district Men's Sheds in Colden Common and Alresford:
