From the outside a shed can look like any other shed. As men get older and the need to downsize our accommodation increases, one of the first casualties is our shed in the backyard. From this scenario a uniquely Australian phenomena was born – The Men's Shed. This is a place where members of the community of all different life experiences come together at their own pace, share skills, swap ideas, solve problems and be involved in projects for the benefit of the community
If you look inside a Men's Shed you will begin to notice some subtle and not so subtle differences between the various sheds. These differences will generally reflect the interests of and the activities undertaken by the shed members.
The Men's Shed also operates a community garden for the benefit of members and the general community. We also have a program to teach interested members about the use and maintenance of computers.
New shed members may have no experience using tools for woodwork or metalwork but there are many members with extensive experience that are very willing to guide you in the safe and proficient use of the equipment in the Shed.If you are willing to learn there is a member to assist and be your mentor. You are most welcome to call into the shed during a period when the shed is open and have a look around.
