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.

I needed help with my garden. Sallie from the Hackney 50+Drop in put me in touch with GoodGym. Two girls came clear all the leaves and weeds, and dug up my potatoes for me. They also planted some plants after the pruning. They made a good job and they did not ask for payment.
GoodGym is really a good service that I would recommend to anyone over sixty who needs help.
