Meet­ings a chance to get ball rolling

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

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.
