Attention Shed Leaders:

 

Diverse Photos of Sheds!

There has been an ongoing request from Men's Sheds around the home countries for good quality photos showing the diversity we have in Sheds. If your Shed has good photos that you have the rights to share send them over to us at newsletter@ukmsa.org.uk. We will make them available to Member Sheds for use in promoting events and use in press releases.

Throughout the pandemic there has been a great demand from folks wishing to Join a Men's Shed. Please ensure that details about your Shed are up-to-date on our website. Update them here.  https://menssheds.org.uk/find-a-shed/
