Visitors to the Men’s Shed at King’s Lynn now have a new venue to share their skills and socialise.

The move to a new base at Unit 7, Bryggen Road, on the North Lynn Industrial Estate, was celebrated this week at the Tuesday session.

The shedders have been busy over the last few weeks preparing for the move from Lynn’s Hardwick Industrial Estate.

They moved tools, equipment and furniture to the new setting which boasts a good size workshop.

They have set up work benches and got themselves organised ready for the opening session.

Rose Waterman, western locality development worker with Norfolk County Council’s adult social services, said: “They are really excited about having a large social area and a space which will be dedicated to model building and other similar activities.”

The Men’s Shed opening times will remain the same – Tuesdays from noon to 6pm and Thursdays from 10am to 4pm – and anyone is welcome.

The community shed, which opened last summer, is a place where men can share skills, experience and make new friends. 

Men’s Shed projects also aim to help combat isolation and loneliness and provide a place for men of all ages to socialise.
