Warrenpoint & Rostrevor Men's Shed

From The Bandstand talks with Marty Smith and Mark Gibbons of the Men’s Shed.

Check out the video to hear Marty and Mark talk about Rostrevor and Warrenpoint Men’s Shed.

(Councillor Mark Gibbons has been elected to the Newry, Mourne & Down Council as an independent in the local Council Elections that took place in Northern Ireland on 2 May 2019) 

The Men’s Shed concept originates from Australia and has spread around the world.

The Men’s Shed is a place for men to overcome any reluctance to be open about their feelings and general well being.

A physical place to come and aid self-esteem, feel productive and valuable to society, having social relationships and being active.

Marty and Mark are keen to bring on new members from 18 years old up.

So if you are interested or you think any of the men in your life would enjoy this, check out the details below of how you can get in contact.

For many men, their shed is a place of sanctuary where they can work away on their projects.

A shed at home can be a solitary place deepening feelings of isolation.

The Men’s Shed takes all that is good about the shed – leisure, crafts and skills – and builds a community around that.

The Men’s Shed doesn’t have to be an actual ‘shed’ and often is not – just take a look at the splendid facilities in Rostrevor that the Men’s Shed call home.

The Men’s shed is sometimes seen as an older man’s pastime.

But this is not the case – it is open for any man over 18 to join.

Both the Warrenpoint and Rostrevor Men’s Sheds are keen to attract younger men to their ranks to bring new skills and enthusiasm to the Sheds.

It is recognised that many men suffer what is called “retirement blues” when they retire from work.

For many of us our sense of purpose and who we are can be defined through our work.

Friendships and camaraderie forms in the workplace.

Work is also part of our weekly routine.

While all of us look forward to retiring and taking it a bit easier there is no doubt that retirement can leave a huge hole in a person’s life.

The Men’s Shed is the perfect antidote for any man who is feeling a little lost having recently retired.

What does the Men’s Shed actually do?

There is no agenda – it can be about arts and crafts, education and fun.

The Men’s Shed are open to all suggestions from their members about projects and activities.

The Warrenpoint Men’s Shed recently completed a superb replica of Warrenpoint Windmill.

This is currently on display in Warrenpoint Library.
