The Men’s sheds are community spaces for men to connect, converse and create. The activities are often similar to those of garden sheds, but for groups of men to enjoy together. They help reduce loneliness and isolation, but most importantly, they’re fun.
Keepsake Videos followed the Battersea men ‘s shed from the very beginning in 2016 until the completion of their boat project three years later. They achieved so much along the way and made friendship for life.
The Battersea Men’s Shed documentary was premiered at the Battersea Art Centre on the 16th of January 2019.
It was well received and Wandsworth Deputy Mayor Jane Cooper said it was very “uplifting”. The film will be added to Wandsworth Council Website to Showcase this amazing project and inspire other residents to join.
