Porth Men’s Shed – The Woodpeckers

Creativity is around every corner at The Factory. Men’s Shed Porth are literally round the corner in the basement in The Factory!  They are a friendly bunch with lots of talents and skills to impart.

Known as  Porth Men’s Shed – The Woodpeckers they have been in The Factory for about 3 years since moving premises and they have created a warm and welcoming space where men can meet, have a cuppa, chat, and take part in woodwork activities.  The “shed”  has members who have suffered from strokes, bereavement, mental health issues and more. As Gerwyn, the chairman of the group, says, “we are not carers but we care”.

Their space is full of the wonderful things they have created. Click here to see some of their wonderful creations
