Alan Michaels

Established in February 2014 and based in Gordon Terrace, the Shed is a meeting place for men and offers a range of activities including woodworking, discussion groups and IT skill training. The establishment of the Men's Shed in Inverness was the vision of one particularly far-seeing, local man called Alan Michael.  With his energy, enthusiasm and persuasive powers he galvanised a small group of like minded men to work together to form and develop a Men's Shed.  Now, that early vision has moved forward to a state of reality - notwithstanding the fact that a number of hoops had to be jumped through and several obstacles and disappointments had to be overcome.  Failure for this group of men was never an option! Good financial management is vital and we have been incredibly fortunate in having our first year's rent donated by a local charity. Our focus is now centred upon seeking out local sponsorship and identifying other avenues for longer term, financial support - all  to enable our Shed to flourish. We have had a lot of exposure within the local press and have established our own web site. Interest in coming to our Shed is growing steadily and we have a wide range of people already committed to it including a variety of  tradesmen, Health professionals, civil servants, armed service personnel, police officers and many others. Our Shed aims to be as flexible as possible whilst striving to provide, wherever possible, whatever pastime, hobby or pursuit our members may request. Our Logo was devised by members following some brainstorming sessions and one of our original members has composed a poem highlighting the warm welcome that awaits anyone who ventures in through our front door The Inverness Men's Shed  will  prosper because of the nature of those men who are involved and do not be surprised to see other such Sheds emerging in communities throughout the Highlands of Scotland.

If you would like to get involved then please  drop in to our Tuesday meeting which starts at 10 am. If you have any questions please phone us at 01463 243674, or use the Contact-Us Page
