Inverurie and District Men's Shed now has permanent premises at Unit 19, Harlaw Way, Inverurie AB51 4SG due to a successful application for a Community Asset Transfer.
The new Shed premises are open each Monday and Thursday, 10:00 to 16:00. Everyone is welcome, wherever you live. If you can travel to the Shed you can use it for free.

The Men's Shed movement started in Australia, quickly spread to other countries and grew extremely fast as a social and workshop environment for men of all ages from 18-90+ who found themselves retired, out of work, and/or with disabilities or just plain bored. They had time on their hands and the Men's Shed movement was born.
