Ballyphehane Men’s Shed
The Ballyphehane Men’s Shed is a dedicated and welcoming meeting place, where men of all ages come together to talk and connect with others to share information and skills in a safe and friendly environment. It fosters a culture of active participation in hobbies, crafts, and creativity.
A primary objective of our Men’s Shed is to enhance the wellbeing of men in our community. When we refer to men’s health within a shed, we’re not referring to a medical model but a holistic model of health encompassing; physical, mental, social, and spiritual health. The Ballyphehane Men’s Shed is a home from home for many men that offers social support, a sense of purpose and belonging; all of which have been shown to strengthen our immune systems and improve our health.
The main focus of our weekly activities is around finding meaning and purpose, where a friend is always there. On a more practical note, our members engage in a variety of activities. These include:
- Make and repair small furniture
- Design and make flower boxes and planter boxes
- Design and make bird and bat boxes
- Make kindling
- Bespoke projects for local schools and organisations
Members can work on group or individual projects. The group aspect of the shed encourages and supports all the members, enabling each individual to take responsibility and ownership for their projects and possibilities. The Ballyphehane Men’s Shed provides a valuable service to the community.
