Fleetwood Men’s Shed officially opened it’s new Adelaide Street shop and drop-in centre on Bank Holiday Monday. At the ceremony were founder and committee member Tony O’Neil and representatives from two of the agencies who have supported the group, Gail Martin of Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust and Mark Spencer of Healthier Fleetwood who cut the ribbon.
Mr O’Neil said, “It’s amazing how far we have come in just 6 months from starting the Men’s Shed with just one person attending the first meeting to now having 3 busy sessions a week and this new shop. We want to be there for Fleetwood people who might just need somebody to talk to or want to get involved in the Community. Our long-term aim is to make a real difference and help improve the lives of local residents.”
