Men’s Shed meet each Tuesday morning from 10:30am at Artisans Collective at The Old Library on Nant Hall Road, Prestatyn, North Wales, LL19 9LH

A Men’s Shed is a community project with the aim of promoting men’s health and well being through social interaction and practical activity.

‘Men’s Sheds’ are social groups or enterprises set up in local communities for the benefit of men.

They are self-governed, self- supported and sustainable with a small committee; their own individual constitution, their own income and eventually their own premises.

How each individual shed looks and the activities that take place in them depend entirely on the skills and interests of the group.

You’d be forgiven for thinking a man’s shed is all about making things out of wood. While many are wood-working groups there is also a huge array of other activity on offer.

Shedders are artists, collectors, story-tellers, amateur radio enthusiasts, train spotters, model makers…..Anyone is welcome and any interest, skill or project is given equal consideration – especially if it could attract new members or gain valuable income to support the development of the entire group.

Men's Shed Prestatyn members pressing ApplesWe are affiliated to Men’s Sheds Cymru, and supported by Artisans Collective CIC. Prestatyn Town Council have been and continue to be very supportive of the project.

The ‘Older People’s Commissioner for Wales‘ acknowledges that the Men’s Sheds are desperately needed in Wales with older men here being the loneliest people in the UK

There are currently well over a hundred Men’s Sheds in the UK either already established or in the planning stage but relatively few in North Wales.

The nearest to Prestatyn is the Rhyl Men’s Shed which currently meets on a Monday and Tuesday at 119 Wellington Road in the town.

There are also Sheds either already established or in the beginning stages in  Colwyn Bay Llandudno, Denbigh, Llanrwst, and Blaenau Ffestiniog with others in the planning stage.
