The Men's Shed movement started 16 years ago as a method of counteracting the effects of boredom and isolation when faced with retirement, illness, unemployment or bereavement.
There are now over fifty Men's Sheds in Scotland. These are run and staffed by the shed volunteers themself.
An initiative by a small number of men with the help of Falkirk Council was set up in 2016 and has attracted a number of sponsors and moved in to a unit suitable for converting into workshops. What you can do in the Men's Shed.
