Men Shed from Daily Examiner - Work Shed Climate Right AirWhen you look at your shed, do you ever think of it as a space that could make a difference? For a bunch of guys in England, one work shed gives them some great community.

It۪s the U3A or University of the Third Age Men۪s Shed, and it provides a woodworking shop for members in the area.

U3A is an organization created to provide educational, creative, and leisure opportunities for retired members of the community, and their Men۪s Shed is set up to allow for community and creativity in a one-stop workshop. They occasionally open the shed to visitors who can explore their space and learn more about the organization and its interest groups. 

David Abraham۪'s Story

David Abraham is a U3A member who got involved with the organization nine years ago. It provided exactly what he was looking for, so since he began, he has moved all of his tools into the Men۪'s Shed and become treasurer of the organization.

He said of the shed: It keeps me off the streets and keeps my mind active. There۪'s great companionship.
