MAYO has its first Women’s Shed.
Based on the same concept as the successful Men’s Shed initiative, a group of women in Castlebar have set up their own organisation following a big display of interest.
It is open at the top floor of the Castlebar Social Services Centre, Castle Street carpark, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 2 to 4 p.m. and all women are welcome to attend.
The group is already on the look-out for a permanent premises and is only using the social services centre on a temporary basis. Members would certainly appreciate any offers of a suitable room or venue.
First and foremost, however, the group is seeking to establish Castlebar Women’s Shed on a solid foundation and carry out good work on behalf of the community.
