St Andrews Men's Shed is a newly established self-help group that meets on a Tuesday morning at a bespoke workshop at the back of the Botanic Gardens in St Andrews. The Shed is looking for help with supervising a variety of practical projects. St Andrews Men's Shed is a place open to all men over the age of 18, voluntarily run by the men where we can socialise and work on projects or hobbies. It is a place to help others or get help, play a game of cards, relax over a tea or coffee, have a laugh with new and old friends and maybe create something for yourself or your community. We undertake a variety of projects such as building and installing benches for the Botanics, repairing old mechanical gardening equipment or making wooden objects for sale at Craigtoun Fayres.
