WHAT IS A

MEN'S SHED?

The modern Men’s Shed is an updated version of the shed in the backyard that has long been a part of Australian culture. Men’s Sheds are springing up all around Australia and internationally.

Not all Men’s Sheds are the same - if you looked inside you might see a number of men making furniture, perhaps restoring bicycles for a local school, making Mynah bird traps, fixing lawn mowers or making a cubby house for Camp Quality to raffle. You might also see a few young men working with the older men obtaining new skills and learning something about life from the men with whom they work. You might see local elders making traditional weapons or designing arts and crafts. You will see tea-bags, coffee cups and a comfortable area where men can sit and talk. You will probably also see an area where men can learn to cook for themselves or how to contact their families by computer.

A Men’s Shed is a dedicated, friendly and welcoming meeting place where men come together and undertake a variety of mutually agreed activities.

 

Men’s Sheds are open to all men regardless of age, background or ability. It is a place where you can share your skills and knowledge with others, learn new skills and develop your old skills.

 

New members are always welcome and can be assured that there is something of interest for everyone as the men have ownership of their Shed and projects and decide their own program of events.

what do we do?

Basically, anything that the members feel is beneficial to themselves, and/or the Community

These activities range from the regular Wednesday morning chat and coffee, whilst solving all known problems in the universe,  to skill training, wood and metal projects,  Community activities, external visits,  and in-house talks by experts in various fields.

Some of our recent  projects include construction of insect boxes, construction of serving platters for a local winery, building seats and benches for local reserves, residents requests, maintenance for community groups, a large steel  construction for a resident.

We also assist with the Carols by Candlelight, Village Festival, and print the Village Bell in the Shed.
