BIGMEN IN SHEDS are moving out to reach & support more men.  Following a successful pilot in the village of Hartford, Age Concern Cheshire has received a Big Lottery Fund grant of £493,138 to take the aptly named ‘MEN IN SHEDS’ project to areas of Cheshire. The scheme is designed to give men over the age of 50 who have experienced life-changing events such as retirement, redundancy, ill-health & bereavement a unique chance to socialise & share and learn new skills together.
