We use our well equipped carpentry workshop as a tool to engage older men in a range of wood work projects and crafts.

There are other activities available such as art, cooking and board games but wood work is our main focus.

Refreshments and listening ears are also provided.

Men who are seeking to brush up on old skills or learn new ones in a friendly environment to relieve the boredom and isolation of retirement.

An opportunity to meet like minded people for a cup of tea and a chat, and do something positive at the same time.
