Presentation of a prize, for our Men's Shed poster, by Drew Walker, Director of Public Health, NHS Tayside. The poster had been presented at a Public Health Conference in Aviemore on 6th November 2014.
Neil Fenwick from our Men's Shed has kindly put up some shelving for the soup kitchen in the Aviva building. Photo, (16 Dec 2014) supplied by Ron Cathro Photography, Dundee. LINK to article in The Courier dated 29 Dec 2014.
Local men from the Carse of Gowrie and District (Scotland) formed a steering group and set up a Men’s Shed which is currently based in Swan House, Technology Park, Dundee (See bottom of this page for links to a map).
The Men’s Shed is an idea which originated in Australia, to create somewhere men can call their own, where they can spend time with other men sharing skills, knowledge and interests in a relaxed environment.
Men’s sheds provide a place for men to gather and participate in a variety of activities whilst supporting each other.
The concept is now starting to take off in Scotland so if you or someone you know would like to be involved in this exciting project or to find out more about the “Carse of Gowrie and District Men’s Shed”
If you have any questions or comments please contact our Shed Secretary Derek Keiller.

The Men’s Shed project is supported by Perth and Kinross Healthy Communities Collaborative joint partners with NHS Tayside and Perth and Kinross Council, Scotland.
If any other group is interested in setting up a Men's Shed in their own area we are happy to give you advice based on our own experience.
We now have a temporary 'home' in the 'Aviva building' ie Swan House, The Technology Park, Dundee, DD2 1GB. We have 2 rooms, one that we can use as a meeting room and one that we can use as a workshop. Photos of the accommodation are available in our Photo Gallery.
The group is meeting every Wednesday afternoon from 1.00 to 4.00pm starting on Wed 19th March 2014. The meetings are open to all - please feel free to come - a good time for new people would be about 1.30pm. The Building is accessed via the turn off from Explorer Rd. Street View.
