New Men’s shed has strong foun­da­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE next stage of the Gayndah Men’s Shed has started, with the con­crete slab be­ing laid by vol­un­teers this past Mon­day morn­ing.

Gayndah Men’s Shed pres­i­dent Rob Miller said he couldn’t thank the vol­un­teers enough for their help.

“We re­ally want to thank the lo­cal lads who came out to help lay the slab, they all came out here and did it for noth­ing,” Mr Miller said.

“I might only have 10 years left here but they will be the ones who will ben­e­fit from it the most over the years.”

The Men’s Shed sold 152 squares of space to raise the funds for the slab and will now look to moving on to the next stage of the building process.

“Once the slab is done we will get th­ese boxes opened and the shed will go up,” Mr Miller said.

“Army en­gi­neers are com­ing up in mid July to early Au­gust to help put it up, this and the Monto shed which is for sport and recre­ation.”

Mr Miller said the sup­port of the com­mu­nity to get the shed up and go­ing had been great.

“I think is spe­cial to get this type of sup­port,” Mr Miller said.

“I said to the boys on open­ing day they are in­vited and we will feed them and give them some re­fresh­ments.”
