Over recent weeks thanks to help of Kirklees Council’s Community Engagement Officers I have been responding to a growing level of interest in establishing Men’s Sheds in Kirklees.
In Batley several organisation are showing an interest including the Pakistani Kashmiri Welfare Association (PKWA) The Indian Muslim Welfare Association (IMWA) and the Batley Bulldogs Rugby Club. In Ravensthorpe the Al Huda Zawiya Center is also keen to work with other local groups in establishing a shed.
We are also exploring possible premises for a Men’s Shed in Gomersal.
In the south of the District St Augustine’s Church in Scissett is looking at establishing a men group to carry out practical conservation work in the outdoors.
If you are interested in any of these projects then please get in touch with myself or the organisations concerned.
