A little history on ‘Men’s Sheds’ in Australia :
The Men’s Shed is here, and it’s thriving!
There’s nothing new about men gathering together in their own space to talk, share skills, swap ideas, solve problems or just discuss life in general – it’s been happening since the beginning of time. There’s nothing new either about men spending time in their backyard shed – an acknowledged Aussie past time.
The Wendouree Men’s Shed is about men feeling useful and contributing again to their community, learning or sharing their skills, making friends, networking and availing themselves of health information programmes and opportunities.
Come and enjoy time in the Shed. To get started there is a membership form to fill out and an annual fee of $20.00.
Open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday between 9.30am and 2.00pm.
Wendouree Men’s Shed now have their own Facebook Page, why not click the following link and check it out? https://www.facebook.com/wendoureemensshed
ENJOY TIME IN THE SHED?
Members work together to make and sell items to raise money for the shed, social activities or they help out in the local community.
The Shed community has men of many diverse interests and skills, who share their knowledge and interests.
If you would like to join, come down and have a look. Membership forms are available at the Wendouree Neighbourhood Centre Reception. Once approved an annual fee of $20.00 is payable.
The Shed now has an air conditioned meeting room with thanks to State Government of Victoria.
