MORNINGTON Men’s Shed have generously used a grant received from the Mornington Peninsula Shire to make a table to present to the council.
Men’s shed workshop manager Tony Sinclair said the grant made it possible for the shed volunteers to purchase some new wood working equipment, and the table was a kind of ‘thank you’ gift.
Sinclair said the men’s shed was involved in a range of projects for the council, and was grateful for the support.
“At the moment we are using the timbers from the old Rye Pier to make a seat and an upstand for the solar stop at Mornington Park in Main Street,” he said.
Mornington Men’s Shed is one of the largest men’s sheds on the peninsula, and has around 100 members.
It hopes to be able to move to bigger and better premises in the near future.
