Setup in 2019 by a group of local like-minded people with the aim of providing a membership-based community workshop for the people of Blyth, Northumberland, Blyth Man Shed is a member of the UK Mens Shed Association.
Created by the people of Blyth, for the people of Blyth. Blyth Men’s Shed (BMS) is a community workshop for everyone (not just men), giving individuals sanctuary and escape from the isolation & loneliness which often leads to poor mental health & well-being. Depression and failing mental health are a growing concern within society today and it is widely recognised that this is disproportionately the case across the male population, who sadly don’t talk, rather choosing the ‘bottle it up’ approach.
Our aims & vision for the shed are very much in keeping with the ethos & spirit of the association. You can find out more by visiting the UKMSA website.
