Hope Valley Mens Shed Mission Statement
Men’s Sheds (or Sheds) are similar to garden sheds. The difference is that garden sheds and their activities are often solitary in nature while Men’s Sheds are the opposite. They help reduce loneliness and isolation, but most importantly, they’re fun. They're community spaces for men to connect, converse and create. A place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice skills and enjoy making and mending, they’re about social connections and friendship building, sharing skills and knowledge, and of course a lot of laughter. The Hope Valley Mens Shed has been set up to pursue these aims and those of the Peak Park Conservation Centre in the Hope Valley .
