Men finally put tin roof over heads
WHILE members of the Woodgate Men’s Shed await construction of their shed, it hasn’t stopped them from continuing their health talk program.
Last week, the Men’s Shed had a special guest speaker from the Stroke Foundation come along to their temporary site.
Local ambassador Graham Jackson gave a presentation on the many aspects of strokes, including the various risk factors and symptoms.
Men’s Shed health projects organiser Robert Bell said the health talks played an important role in equipping attendees with information which could one day save a life.
Mr Bell said about 20 people turned up to the talk and were able to take some vital information away.
“They got quite a bit out of it,” he said.
Mr Bell said progress on the new shed meant the group’s new meeting room would be available for future health talks.
He said another health talk was scheduled in December on Arthritis and a talk on depression will be held in late January.
Members, partners and the Woodgate community are welcome to attend meetings.
WORKING PROGRESS: It won't be long before Woodgate Men's Shed members make themselves at home in their brand new shed.
HANDS ON: Woodgate Men's Shed members have been busy helping building their shed.
