We are considering the possibility of creating a MensShed in Lewes and are testing the water to see how much interest / support there might be for the idea.
A MensShed is a community work space where people can come and work on their own projects individually or in groups. Historically they have been woodwork based but we would like to do all sorts.
The idea started in Australia but there are over 100 menssheds in the UK now.

The charity I work for has funded the Worthing Men In Sheds group - I think there would be many men in Lewes interested in this!

The point in a 'Men's Shed' is its a place for men to form friendships and bond with other men without going to a pub or a football match! Women there would defeat the object - start a women's shed if you want one!

Looking at the links it seems women can be involved too.

These are some examples of ways other places have created Mens Sheds.

Anyone got a large shed or unit to spare?

In all the videos of men's sheds women are more than welcome and whilst the name originates from the Australian version, any traditional skills that either sex can provide I suspect would be more than welcome.

Will gay men be able to come into the shed or would you have to be straight?

Great Idea, often thought a skill swop would be a great idea,
Everyone has skills to share, I would love to learn new ones.
Some of the comments made me laugh eg. Mel and Chillipat!
