Llanfyllin's Workhouse played host to the grand opening of a popular initiate to help older men of a certain age be part of a group last weekend.

Llanfyllin Men's Shed held its grand opening as apart of a wider open day at the popular destination, with plenty of music and refreshments on offer for visitors

Vic Brown, chairman of Llanfyllin Men's Shed, was delighted to see the fruits of their labours coming good with the grand opening, and hopes more people will join them in creating the group's success.

"We said the open day was for people to get more publicity so that more people can get involved," he said.

"It's great to see more people getting involved.

"There's 55 Men's Sheds in Wales – we were the 52nd but it's still good to see more growth in the area.

"It's nice to see so many people getting here and it promised to be a good day. We were supported by the other units in the Llanfyllin Workhouse by opening and that was great to see."

The day was helped put together by Community Connector for the Llanfyllin area, Sheela Hughes, with representatives from groups working in areas such as Dementia, as well as artisan traders showing off their skills.

The group usually meets every Friday from 10am until midday for a general meeting but anyone can get in touch to have a chat for an opening.
