Fed up?  Bored?  Want to do something useful?

A shed is just the place for you.


It’s a great place to meet others, undertake your hobby or learn a new one. You can pass on your skills and knowledge or just come along and have a chat and a cup of tea.


Why we do this:

Statistically, after men have retired they have a tendency to become isolated. Working on practical projects with a group of similar-minded men can help to combat this, and to make new friends.


Our vision:

To alleviate loneliness and have a positive effect on the health and wellbeing of older men in Newport, Madeley and the surrounding districts.


Our mission:

To provide a safe, friendly environment in Newport and Madeley, with well-equipped facilities, where men will meet to enjoy their hobbies or learn new ones, make friends and enjoy each other's company.


Our values:

By common endeavour we will welcome and support each other to do our best to fulfil our need for friendship and companionship. We will always treat each other with respect and integrity. We will value each other's individuality and need for independence, but look to build a good team spirit and contribute to society. We will pass on our skills and knowledge.


Where to find us:

Newport Men's Shed operates from two locations: Our workshop in Coalbrookdale where you can get involved in specialist woodwork and our main Men's Shed at Hall Barn in Madeley where you can join in with other activities. Come along to Hall Barn on a Tuesday or Thursday, or Coalbrookdale on a Wednesday. See here for more info.
