The Open Day for the launch of the Girvan Men’s Shed Initiative was well attended and deemed a huge success by its organisers Ernie and Gill Kenney, Executive Members, of the Girvan Town Team.

States Ernie, “It was a hugely successful day with 10 men signing up for the Girvan Men’s Shed Initiative. At the moment we have two potential sites on our radar and we hope to have activities beginning next month.

Further discussion on the way forward will take place at the Town Team meeting on the first Thursday of September at 6.30pm in the Girvan Town House.”

During the Open Day participants had the opportunity to discuss with Ernie and his team the types of activities that they would like to do.

An early activity will be the design of bespoke sweat shirts and baseball caps for the new members! And don’t feel it’s too late to join. If you wish to be part of this new programme then please contact Ernie on 07809741631.

And ladies of Girvan don’t feel left out! Gill is keen to support the setting up of a Women’s Shed Initiative.

If you are interested in being a member than please contact Gill by email on or alternatively on Ernie’s number above.
