Men fi­nally put tin roof over heads

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.
