Bandon's Men's Shed Says It's Future Looks Bleak Without Funding And Alternative Premises
It ceased operations last year as the premises they were using was converted into apartments for the elderly

Bandon Men's shed ceased operations last year as the premises they were using was converted into apartments for the elderly.
The group says its future looks bleak with no alternative premises in sight and no financial support to reopen.
