Tackling men’s social isolation


Men in Barnes are being given the opportunity to get to know others in the local area, thanks to a new initiative –  Barnes Men’s Shed – which aims to tackle social isolation. The new space will provide workshops and social interaction, funded by Richmond Council’s Village Planning Fund. It is a joint project between the Barnes Community Association, Castelnau Community Project and FiSH Neighbourhood Care and will receive £10,000 through the first round of the Village Planning Fund.The shed will be a space and opportunity for the community to come together, form social networks and hone or learn new skills. A range of wood and metal working projects will be available such as building bird boxes to be placed around The Barnes Trail. For more information, visit: richmond.gov.uk/village_planning_fund
