    A successful woodwork project at Abacus Sevenoaks has become so popular, it is now open for a third day during the week.

    Sevenoaks Men's Shed

    In 2016 West Kent partnered with Men's Shed, Kent division, to run the woodwork project at our Abacus warehouse in Sevenoaks. But, despite its name, you don't have to be a man to attend.

    The Men's Sheds Association was originally set up as a meeting place for retired men. Research found that men’s social and support networks usually revolve around work and when they retire this network can change or vanish completely, leading to social isolation and loneliness. The Sheds are set up across the country for a variety of activities including model making, gardening, carpentry, bike refurbishment and woodwork. 

    If you are interested in what’s on offer at your local shed just pop along and get involved. Go to the Kent Shed website to find out what’s near you, check out their national website, or visit their Facebook page @UKMensSheds
