CAERAU MEN'S SHED Shoulder to Shoulder
Since Covid hit the UK in January 2020 many organizations were badly affected. Caeraumenshed were among those that were hit. However simultaneously CMS was entering serious negotiations to move into new premises and set up a Workshop. This was right at the start of the Lockdown !!
Negotiations were underway to take over the former Ann’s Enterprises building in Nantyffyllon Maesteg. To do so would see major changes in the operation of CMS along with a massive financial commitment.
Do we go forward or withdraw? Two difficult questions that members had to decide.
The Men’s Shed movement started approximately 12 years ago in Australia and currently there are around 40 Men’s Shed groups in Wales under the umbrella of Men’s Shed Cymru.
Each Men”s Shed is unique, but has a common thread in that they have been set up to establish support for men who require friendship, support and a sense of belonging.
Each shed has its own individuality with some sheds meeting at a variety of places including allotments, an industrial unit, a farm building, a hospital, a former court, converted Police garages. Caerau Men’s Shed meets at Caerau Community Centre every Friday for a cuppa, lunch, chat and various projects.
The members of the Caerau Men’s Shed have variety of different backgrounds and are mixed ages, but all share one common theme. To have fun, support, friendship and help people in their local community.

It is rewarding for me to help isolated people to have a better life and gain new friends in a safe and caring environment.
It has given me a new focus in life!
Finding a different and rewarding social life
What a difference has joining Caerau Men Shed made to our lives?
It gives me a chance to meet new people and old friends
A very big difference getting out for a few yours and having an interest outside of the home, and giving me confidence to do other things.
Being constructive and helping others!
It has enabled me to see how it has made my fellow “Shedders” grow and rebuild their lives. Comradeship is about helping each other out.
