POINT Nepean Men’s Shed members are cock-a-hoop after receiving shire approval to build a shed for their mobile workshop van and equipment storage at Stringer Reserve, Blairgowrie.

The 120 square metre shed of corrugated iron on a concrete slab will be additional to their workshop in the former Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad hangar, Hotham Road, Sorrento.

Members have been busy on various community projects, such as building planter boxes, potting tables and garden retaining walls at Sorrento Primary School, bicycle maintenance and restoration at Rye Primary School, building whisper phones for St Joseph’s Primary School, raised planter beds and a pergola at Blairgowrie Community Garden.

The $42,000 shed at Stringer Reserve will be used for bike repairs, making planter boxes, and parking the truck which, at the moment, must be moved out of the Hangar each time they need to use the space.
