New Milton Men's Shed
The New Milton Men’s Shed exists to provide a safe and friendly environment, for people to come together in order to promote the health and wellbeing of all its members.
The members share skills, knowledge and experience to enrich each other’s lives, by undertaking practical projects and using their shed as a social hub.
The activities of the shed are driven by the aims and interests of its membership, to benefit themselves and the wider community.
To promote social inclusion for public benefit through the provision of a facility particularly for, but not exclusively for, men at risk of being socially excluded.
To prevent social exclusion by promoting the opportunity for friendships, social engagement and skill sharing in a safe and enjoyable environment, in which members can meet and carry out creative projects acceptable to the Shed and of their own choosing, individually, jointly and for the benefit of the wider community.
To promote good health and wellbeing to its members through active participation and, from time to time, providing opportunities for relevant health organisations to raise awareness of good health strategies for the benefit of the Shed.
New Milton Men`s Shed Association are grateful for the sponsorship of local companies and organisations. Without their support and generosity it would be difficult to continue. New sponsors are always welcome. Our contact page can be used to get further information on how to do this.

In September 2018 Hampshire County Council set up a public meeting in the New Milton Community Centre to discuss, and assess, the public response to the need for a Men's Shed in the New Milton area. Some 70-80 people attended the meeting resulting in the formation of a management committee with the aim of creating a "New Milton Men's Shed". The management committee was tasked with making the 'shed' a reality. The progress made to date includes:
Informal weekly meetings for prospective members at new Milton Town Football Club, Fawcetts Field, Barton-on-Sea.
Progress has been made in the acquisition of suitable premises.
A bank account has been set up.
Now a member of the Mens's Shed Association.
