Men's Shed Coordinator, Umberto Scappaticci of CNP, says: “Many people ask, what exactly is a Men’s Shed? Well, it’s not a real shed, it’s a social group just for men. The men meet up several times a week, get a cuppa, and participate in events and activities."
"Men’s Sheds are an Australian phenomenon which have gained in popularity, and Colin Neighbourhood Partnership set one up in the Colin area to cater to the needs of local men. All the members enjoy getting together, whether it be to learn a new skill, take up a new hobby or just to get out of the house. They absolutely love the social aspect to it and have built up friendships along the way.”
