The Alresford Men’s Shed occupies several rooms in one of the factory units at the top of the Dean, in Alresford. One room is equipped with 6/7 work benches, suitable for wood working or model building. Another room has a seating area and is suitable for relaxing with a coffee, or drawing plans. This clean area has a desk/table, where a wifi internet connection is available: a clean area can be used for electronic and other similar repairs. Space can be created for other activities – for example the Pigs plan to repair their old Mobility scooters with help from members of the Shed. Despite the “Men’s Shed” name, women are welcome to join in any of the current activities, or can create new project areas. It is not considered that the workshop is a suitable place for children, and we expect all workers to make use of relevant PPE and safety equipment, following the Shed Rules.
In the kitchen there are washing up facilities, mugs, and tea/coffee – there is also a fridge and microwave available. There will be a washing up rota!!!
