At the invitation of Hilbre Jones, I visited the Men’s Shed at Oswestry Showground. I was delighted to meet about 15 members of the Shed, including its chairman Neil Conuel, and to be shown round the various buildings which have wood- and metal-working machinery available for use by members. The theme of my year as High Sheriff is to encourage all those who are working to alleviate rural isolation, and I think that the Oswestry Men’s Shed is doing an excellent job. The Shed is looking for more members and I would advise any man with an interest in meeting others to contact them at oswestrymensshed.co.uk/.
