A NEW, larger shed being built for Western Port Men’s Shed in Sudholz Street, Bittern, will allow members more scope to help schools, charity groups and residents with projects and repairs.
The kitchen and social area will allow members to learn cooking skills – especially important for those living alone – as well as being able to mix in a social atmosphere.
Members are keen to pass on their skills and help new members with their projects or with community projects. Women’s weekly woodworking classes are held through Crib Point Community House.
President and treasurer Colin Prowd said the shed was expected to be completed by late August or early September. “Members will then be pleased to show interested people around and explain the working of men’s sheds and their role within the local community and in men’s health,” he said.
