Men from Garve & District WelcomePost in Community by Alan Illingworth
Dingwall Mens Shed (DMS) is a Community Group serving the social and health needs of men within Dingwall and surrounding areas.
Please come and join us - you would be most welcome!
Our purpose is to reduce social isolation through the provision of recreational and craft facilities and to advance the social needs, health needs and well-being of men of all ages and backgrounds living in Dingwall and surrounding areas. We are very active within the community by maintaining amenity areas in Parks and Public places and in helping vulnerable groups and individuals in their homes and gardens. Above all we have provided a gateway back into society for men who for whatever reason have been excluded.
We want to achieve the aim of becoming a significant sponsor for the improvement of men’s health and wellbeing. With regard to our membership, the shed aims to double its existing membership to 68 by 2021. The vision is to develop premises to meet the needs of the Men’s Shed but also to provide space for other community groups who are currently nomadic. The new facility will enable us to increase community capacity in partnership with other agencies. Partnerships will be developed with other third sector organisations, local businesses and public bodies.
Mens Sheds are a place for men of all ages to come and relax, socialise, or even work with their hands.
Dingwall Mens Shed currently runs every wednesday, 11am-1pm at Ross County's Community Hub. Come along if you have a bit of free time, any hobbies or interests are welcomed.
