Men in Sheds
The Men in Sheds Project in Port Erin is getting a bigger workplace, thanks to a grant from the Manx Lottery Trust. Men in Sheds is run by Southern Community Initiatives and started in March 2010, based in a double garage and dedicated woodworking shed off Castletown Road.
Since then, the workshop has become an important community asset, offering support to other charitable, voluntary, cultural and faith organisations.
