Men’s Activities Networking Event – 8 Nov

North Halifax Staying Well Steering Group and Phoenix Shed (Men in Sheds) invite you to a Men’s Activities Networking Event on Thursday 8 November 2018.

1pm – 4pm at Threeways Centre, Nursery Lane, Ovenden, HX3 5SW.

The event will focus on activities that get men talking, socialising and doing things to improve their wellbeing.

There will be a variety of workshops, demonstrations and talks on the agenda from some local groups who are already reaching men with significant success, including,

  • Phoenix Shed
  • Andy’s Man Club
  • Men United
  • Halifax Rugby League Foundation
  • DadsRUs

Open to all men, women and community groups who want to discover what works to engage men and what doesn’t. Have you got an idea for an activity that could improve the health and wellbeing of men in Calderdale? Come along to our networking event and see who else might be able to help you?

Refreshments included.

Please email to reserve your space and ensure we have enough cake to go round!
