 A motion has been submitted in Scottish Parliament praising the work of Mens Sheds.

The motion reads as follows.. 

Members' Business: Men's Sheds

That the Parliament recognises the important contribution that the Men's Sheds movement makes to people's wellbeing; notes that there are now sheds running or in development across the length and breadth of the country, including in Lauder, Galashiels, Peebles, Mayfield and Roslin; understands that the activities and groups vary from community to community but that, by and large, the sheds provide a meeting place for men to undertake activities in a friendly, supportive and social environment; believes that such groups can have a positive impact on men's mental health and wellbeing by providing supportive groups that offer an opportunity for them to feel more able to open up about anything bothering them as well as helping them build positive ties in their community, and hopes that more sheds can continue to be established.
