A weekly group for men in Totnes to talk about wellbeing, learn new skills and share food. Make amazing pizza by chopping wood, starting a fire and chat to others. Possibly the only pizza that's actually good for you.

Kingsbridge and District Men's Shed

Men's Sheds are similar to garden sheds - a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice skills and enjoy making and mending. The difference is that garden sheds and their activities are often solitary in nature while Men's Sheds are the opposite. They're about social connections and friendship building, sharing skills and knowledge, and of course a lot of laughter.
