3.45pm: CANCELLED: Yate Ageing Better Champions
Armadillo Youth Venue & Cafe
With much regret, this has been cancelled.
Do you live in Yate or Chipping Sodbury and are you approaching retirement age or have already retired and want to make the most of ‘Ageing Better’ in Yate? You may be interested in becoming a Champion for Yate Ageing Better.
Yate Town Council consulted maturing residents to find out how we can make Yate a great place within which to age better. The aim is to make our town more age friendly and the Champions would be a group who could help to achieve that.
The Champions would keep their ear to the ground and listen to problems and share information and ideas with people to find out the best way to be fulfilled and active and ‘Age Better’.

Even though this charity is called “Yate Men’s Shed”, we are not exclusively for men! The Yate Men’s Shed charity aims to be self funding and to provide a venue for older people in our community to meet up, to pursue their practical hobbies and interests and to socialise. There are many groups aimed at ladies, but few that offer things of practical interest to most men.
There are many practical ideas we wish to pursue, ranging from making bird boxes, car mechanics, fixing bikes, making electronic projects and model aircraft, to participating in larger community projects, or working with other Men’s Sheds in the local area.
An important aim is to provide social contact and opportunities to work with other like minded people. So, if you would like to join us you would be very welcome.
We meet on Thursday mornings at 10:30 for about an hour or so. We are fortunate to enjoy the kind hospitality of The Armadillo youth centre, near Yate leisure centre. Why not come along and join in?
