Removal of Covid Restrictions
From Monday 19th July all covid restrictions were lifted, which allows us to go back to previous procedures.
How does this affect the shed?
This means that a maximum of SIX members may attend the workshop, but others may sit out on the grass verge if they wish to just meet to natter.
However, as the risk of the Delta variant is still prominent and as the infection rate is climbing daily, we feel that morally we owe it to each other to still conform to pre lockdown measures of wearing a mask, using sanitizer on entering and leaving the shed and respecting personal space where possible. For the time being we must be mindful and respect the concerns of other members.
As the facility for making tea and coffee has proved difficult and to some degree unsafe given the size of our shed and space available the Sub and Main committees have deemed it unworkable, so it will therefore be suspended with immediate effect. This will be reconsidered on the initiation of our new shed. Should anyone feel they require refreshments you are advised to bring a flask.
The previous procedure for signing in and the rota for persons responsible for operating the shed on a daily basis will be reinstated ASAP.
Also, please note that when I am not in attendance or on holiday Arthur Clements has kindly offered to take the reins. So, if you require any information or have any concerns regarding the shed, please approach him and he will endeavour to address any issues.
I hope this answers any questions or concerns you may have regarding procedure. If not please feel free to contact me.
Danny Roberts - Shed Manager
I would Just like to add, the management committee have discussed and inputted into the above measures. We are confident that during this time of uncertainty the members of New Milton Men’s Shed will respect each other’s space and help keep everyone safe and well, not only at the workshop, but also at the Football Club each Friday.
Thank you and stay safe.

Welcome - Working for each other.
The Men's Shed is an informal group of men (women are also welcome) who get together to talk/discuss any topic under the sun and occasionally get involved in some physical activity for the benefit of e.g. a local charity or maybe a member of the group.
New Milton Men’s Shed exists to provide a safe and friendly environment, for people to come together and to provide a contact point for like minded folk to meet and socialise. Members share skills, knowledge and experience, to enrich each other’s lives, by undertaking practical projects and using their shed as a social hub. Activities of the shed are driven by the aims and interests of its membership, to benefit themselves, and the wider community.
In addition to the workshop 'shed' regular social meetings are held every Friday between 12h00 and about 14h00 at Fawcetts Field Football Club. Location details for the football club are shown on the 'Contact' page.
