The Menzshed

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 4 July 2013

Every week men who have retired or been made redundant come together at the Wellington Menzshed to work on projects that help the community. Now their work is getting international attention. The British health service put a call out around the world for ideas for projects that help keep seniors independent and involved in their communties. Wellington's Menzshed is one of the winners. Besides the recognition, the award comes with a £1000 prize. John Shrapnell is the secretary of the Menzshed Wellington.
