The Men’s Shed and grounds have been lovingly maintained by members over the previous months and it is looking great!
First off, we’d like to thank all Men’s Shed members for maintaining the shed and grounds, as well as the wider community for safeguarding the Shed during the current health crisis.
Secondly, we’d like to announce that future activities at the Shed will be conducted in accordance with all current COVID-19 restrictions and regulations in respect social distancing, provision of hand sanitisers and limiting participation numbers.
Thirdly, we’re on the hunt!! We’re looking for the following:
- Articles to restore – bikes, toys (like the Model T car jack we salvaged)
- Recyclable bottles and cans
- To borrow or hire a long bladed (45cm) chainsaw.
Fourthly, our first offering to the community (subject to relaxation of restrictions announced on June 12) is a Knot Tying and Rope Splicing course to be held over two weeks from 9am-12 noon on Tuesday June 16 and 23 and Thursday, June 18 and 25.
Teacher Mick Allman (a retired seaman) will provide the instruction and all materials will be supplied. Cost is $5 per session with a gold coin donation for tea/coffee. The course is limited to ten participants.
If you have any of the above items available, would like to register for the course or have any queries, please contact Shed Manager, Bryan Phillips on 0420 299 651.
Don’t forget, new members are always welcome so drop in to see what has been achieved and what’s on offer any weekday morning between 9am-12noon. The Tin Can Bay Community and Men’s Shed can be found behind Cityfarm, Tin Can Bay.
