A Fenland camping park, that offers visitors a chance to get back to nature, is looking for people interested in setting up a men’s shed group.

The Secret Garden Touring Park in Wisbech wants to set it up as a place where men can share their tools and resources and get together in a friendly place.

A spokesman for the park said: “The Men’s Shed is a larger version of the typical man’s shed in the garden - a place where he feels at home and pursues practical interests with a high degree of autonomy.

“A Men’s Shed offers this to a group of such men where members share the tools and resources they need to work on projects of their own choosing at their own pace and in a safe, friendly and inclusive venue.

“They are places of skill-sharing and informal learning of individual pursuits and community projects of purpose, achievements and social interaction.
