The essential skills every modern man should know!

Members of Matlock Round Table have thrown down the gauntlet to find out the essentials that every modern man should know.

The group is on a mission to create the ultimate finishing school for men and is asking people for suggestions.

Once upon a time the rules of manhood were straightforward but things have got a lot more complicated.

In order to produce its authoritative guide, Round Table wants your idea of essential man skills - whether it’s pouring the perfect pint, competent DIY skills or knowing how to compliment a woman.

Round Table’s Cait Allen said: ““Round Table has been built around providing a network of advice and camaraderie for men aged 18-45 since 1927, and therefore our members are well placed to give guidance to men.

“But we are also appealing to people in Matlock to send us their thoughts with the aim of using the responses we receive to produce a guide to becoming an all-round modern day gentleman!”
