Meetings a chance to get ball rolling
EVEN before having a roof to meet under, the Brunswick Junction Men’s Shed has got the ball rolling holding its first two meetings last month.
At the first meeting on January 25, 10 interested men from Brunswick, Gelorup, Burekup and Harvey attended at the Brunswick Junction Community Resource Centre, which shed social committee chairman William Forrest said was an encouraging start.
Mr Forrest said the group discussed a range of topics including potential small projects they could do before they had a shed.
“We talked about some small projects we could do at the centre,” Mr Forrest said.
“Just simple things we could do without having a workshop.”
Mr Forrest said the group had a social focus at the moment, getting people used to coming along to regular meetings.
“It’s a good start and there’s more to come,” he said.
The public comment period for the proposed location of the shed closed on January 31 and the decision will go before the Harvey Shire Council.
Meetings of the shed are held each Thursday at the centre from 10.30am, for more information ring the centre on 9726 1452.
Brunswick Junction Men's Shed committee chairman Peter Monagle, members Wally Anderson and Adrian Downes, and social committee chairman William Forrest chat over a coffee on Thursday.
