About

Girvan and District Men’s shed group was set up in late 2018 as a response to the prior recognition by statutory agency’s /community groups/local people, councilors etc. that our community had problems with social isolation, loneliness, mental health problems etc. especially in men.

The Woodworking shed was the first stage in helping to address these problems. A committee was formed in April 2019. The Gardening project followed in mid 2020. Anyone of any sexual identity is very welcome to join.

People have a choice of what they want to do. They can take part in woodworking and gardening. Some want to sit and have a chat, go for a walk around the park, support each other, network, socialise, discuss various topics, have a laugh or a moan.  

Members will hopefully become more involved…

We fundraise but our main income comes from applications to various funders. We really appreciate the funds that the providers have given…

If you want to join then  contact us at girvanmensshed@gmail.com or come along initially on a Thursday between 12.30 and 3 pm.

Many thanks to the following providers;
