San Fulengcio Town Hall has allocated a plot of land and a budget to build a place where elderly men can go and swap ideas on woodwork, metalwork etc also there’ll be allotments there. The ‘Men’s Shed’ is run by a fully registered non-profit making association, which is now raising the funds to furnish the space.
A number of fundraising events are being held across the local community to see the vision become a reality and many local residents have donated tools or given financial support. The next big event – a performance by The Jersey Boys – will be held on Friday 1st Oct, from 7pm at The Cardinal Belluga Theatre, San Fulgencio. Tickets are priced at 10e and are available from outlets across Urb. La Marina or by calling 643 371 817. Visit San Fulgencio Men’s Shed on Facebook.
Men´s Sheds are community spaces for people to connect, converse and create. The activities are often similar to garden sheds, but for groups of people to enjoy together. They help reduce loneliness and isolation, but most importantly, they´re fun.
A Men´s Shed is a place for sharing skills, helping others with practical tasks, or just getting together for a chat, a game of cards or dominoes, or just a cup of tea or coffee and a custard cream.
