Well, we all got back at dear Ol’ Bryan. Tying him up and out of the way while we all had fun at the Men’s Shed learning knot tying and rope splicing.

Under the expert guidance and knowledge of local man and ex-Navy Petty Officer, Mick Allman, participants were taught a wide range of basic to advanced knots, hitches and splices.

The atmosphere was happy, entertaining and supportive with all participants furthering their knowledge and skill. This was the first official course and many more to come.

Kicking off on July 20 (1pm-3pm) will be the first session of our Health and Wellbeing program which will be a regular offering on the third Monday of each month. The program will focus on physical and mental health issues with information sessions, guest speakers and health checks planned.

If computers and phone technology have you beaten, why not come along to one of our Computer Skills sessions? Held every Thursday between 1pm-3pm, you can BYO computer or book one of ours.

The Shed is off and running with so much going on both inside and outside! Future courses in woodwork, chess, macramé, etc., are planned and concrete pads have been poured outside the workshop entrance and as a base for our garden sheds.

Thanks to Mansell’s Concrete for the supply of the concrete and to our shed members who gave of their time and muscle to get the job done.

We always welcome visitors – they often become new members! Membership costs less than $1/week and the benefits are huge!

So come along and have a look. You won’t be disappointed.

We’re located behind Cityfarm in Tin Can Bay and we’re always there weekdays between 9am-12 noon.  Please also bring your bottles for recycling.
