Southern Mens Shed Network quarterly meeting

We were pleased to host the latest Southern Men's Shed Network meeting on Monday 6th March at Pilands Wood Community centre.

On 12th January 2016 representatives from 17 nearby Mens Shed's meeting in Portsmouth decided to form a Southern Men's Shed Network in order to:

  • Share ideas
  • Share skills
  • Share surplus tools
  • Jointly to promote the formation of sheds in the area
  • Work together on insurance, grants and discounts
  • Arrange joint functions

Some of the sheds in attendance were Romsey, Portsmouth, and from as far as Poole and Reading. Also attending were Mike and Anne from the National Shed Organisation and Jo Phillips the Mens Shed representative for the Royal Voluntary Service

We laid on a buffet lunch and two of our sponsors Tried and Tested Tools, and Gervase from Sharp Edge had stalls from which they very generously donated tools for our raffle.
