From 4 years ago and look where we are now. We are indebted to Steve and Peter for helping us develop and of course all of our members that have helped renovate the John Morris Centre.

Had a great morning at Men's Sheds in #Prestatyn and now have a head full of idea's that Artisans Collective CIC could facilitate but not at Prestatyn The Old Library, Art Craft and Heritage Centre due to the nature of the slightly more industrious style of idea's created today.

So guess what?

After the generous offers of tools and equipment today we could be on the lookout for workshop space in town to fully realise the potential of the scheme - any idea's?

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 like ourselves 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 maker. 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.

Our Home at The John Morris Centre

We 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.
