A fantastic new FREE programme is due to be launched within Newry Mourne and Down. The programme, funded by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB), is being delivery by County Down Rural Community Network. It aims to improve the capacity of men’s sheds/groups by bringing groups together from across the district to develop friendship, create networking opportunities, share best practice and learn from each other.
This exciting programme will consist of the following elements:
- Training, Social and Networking opportunities
- Visits to other successful sheds outside of Newry Mourne and Down Council area and a hotel residential
- A District wide conference where you will hear from industry experts
The programme will provide the participants with the opportunity to learn about the challenges and outcomes of similar projects, while developing your own confidence and skills to undertake similar projects in your own area, in a friendly and informal setting.
