“Men in Sheds”
A project which works to fight loneliness in later life with the help of carpentry has been launched in Burton. “Men in Sheds”, a project originally launched by Age UK, sees men aged 60 and over meet and socialise while learning woodwork skills and renovating old furniture.
Horninglow and Eton Parish Council has now launched a “Men in Sheds” project in a shipping container in St Luke's Park for both men and women over 50 years old, feeling lonely and who would like to learn woodwork. Councillor Clive Keen, chairman of Horninglow and Eton Parish Council and organiser of the Men in Sheds project, said that several men and women from the area have already signed up to take part. The 69-year-old said: "This is all part of trying to reduce the loneliness and isolation of older people in our community. I hope that people will come along and learn how to repair things like tables with a broken leg, or reupholster chairs, and then put this furniture back into circulation for people who have not got very much".
Councillor Keen will be teaching people woodwork at the shed as he worked at a wood yard in Burton for six years before he retired in 2007.
