Men in Sheds opens doors in north

An initiative to combat loneliness and isolation among older men was officially opened today (16 Aug).

The Ramsey-based Men in Sheds group moved into new, permanent premises in the grounds of the town's Cottage Hospital.

Kitted-out with wood and metal working tools and machinery, the facility is both a workshop for creative projects, and a place to meet and chat over coffee.

It was declared open by Chief Minister Howard Quayle.

The project's been set up by Isle of Man Live at Home Schemes - a charity fccused on the older generation, with support from other local community groups.

Chairman of Northern Men in Sheds Frank Pattison says the aim is to keep fellas busy, connected and healthy.
