Thanks to two very kind community members who have recently donated a planer and a metal lathe, the Tin Can Bay Community and Men’s Shed Inc. is now very close to having all the equipment the Shed needs.
During June, members of the Shed Management Committee met in Gympie for a round table discussion with Council’s Planning Department, headed by Councillor Mark McDonald.
This meeting proved very fruitful with a lot of headway being made and matters of concern being resolved.
The Council were very helpful in every respect and, with the Shed now having the services of a draftsperson assisting with internal shed plans and disability parking plans, the Men’s Shed is moving forward strongly again.
A mammoth garage sale is planned for August 17. Community members are encouraged to donate any unwanted, saleable items to the Shed’s premises behind Cityfarm or contact Bryan Phillips (Shed Manager) 0420 299 651, Graham Langdown (President) 0433 062 906 or Paul Boulton (Secretary) 0437 007 911, to negotiate collection of larger items.
