Reminder: Men's Sheds Saturday 17th November

Saturday 17th November 10am to 12pm in the New Pavilion, Radwinter Recreation Ground

Even if you are not a 65+ man, do come and have tea, coffee, cake and a chat to find out more about the Men’s Shed project and how it can benefit the community.

New Radwinter ‘Men’s Shed’ Open Event

We are pleased to announce that the old cricket pavilion at the Radwinter recreation ground has been made available to the Essex Shed Network, in order to establish a Community Men’s Shed in this area of Uttlesford.

A Men’s Shed project is a larger version of the typical man’s shed in the garden – a place where he feels at home and pursues practical interests, with a high degree of autonomy. A Men’s Shed offers this to a group of such men, where members share the tools and resources they need to work on projects of their own choosing at their own pace and in a safe, friendly and inclusive venue.

We are holding an open event on Saturday the 17th of November 2018 between 10am to 12pm for any men 65 years plus who would be interested in becoming members of this exciting project.

We will be available to talk with you about the Shed Project, tea, coffee and cake will also be provided.

We look forward to meeting you

Active Together (Radwinter Pavilion) short, quick survey

 

Here is the survey link we promised recently and we really need to hear from you all. 

It should only take 3 minutes to do.

Thank you to everyone who has done a paper copy. If you want one instead, please let us know.

 

We promised the short questionnaire as part of our consultation about your priorities to become more active.

With the benefit of a new grant from Active Uttlesford, we will can offer some activities or taster sessions free of charge that could become permanent if popular. 

What would get your support? What are your talents that you (or your contacts) could offer? The survey-link has options:

Balance or dance or walking sessions?

Outdoor informal games such as boules?

Seated exercise classes that you could do at home too?

Creative activities?

Things for children or adults or both? 

Daytime, evenings or weekends?

Let us know……..
