MEN'S SHED PROJECT
The Strathpeffer Men's shed project is currently being developed by the Strathpeffer Residents Association.
The Men’s Shed movement began in Australia when men realised they could come together around practical tasks on a regular basis, particularly if they had a designated place or workshop where tools and work in progress could be stored. This appeals to men both living alone or with partners and at all ages although the vast majority of ‘shedders’ are at or beyond retirement date. Many older men lose some sense of purpose with the loss of their work role, status, work mates, income etc and can find themselves disengaged from their community if the pub or sports is not their thing.
