Men’s Shed to grow big­ger

Avon Valley Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

MUN­DAR­ING Men’s Shed is gear­ing up to open a third build­ing with a lit­tle help from its mem­bers.

The new premises will of­fer recre­ational space for men, thanks to a cash wind­fall from Bendigo Bank in Mun­dar­ing and Lot­tery­west.

Mun­dar­ing Men’s Shed vice-pres­i­dent Wally Winfield said the fin­ished build­ing would pro­vide ac­cess for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties and a much-needed space in which to re­lax in­side or out on one of two new ve­ran­das.

“We al­ready have two sheds, one for wood­work and a sec­ond for met­al­work, so we wanted to pro­vide a space where men could en­joy a bit of male ca­ma­raderie with­out hav­ing to feel they needed to do ac­tiv­i­ties,” Mr Winfield said.

The men will paint the build­ing them­selves and de­sign the land­scap­ing for all three build­ings.

Mun­dar­ing Men’s Shed is open from 9am to 3pm Tues­days, Wed­nes­days and Thurs­days and 9am to noon ev­ery fourth Satur­day of the month.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call the shed on 0469 381043 or Wally on 9295 4284 or email mun­dar­ing shed@gmail.com.
