Serv­ing it up for a good cause

Isis Town and Country - - News -

IT WAS all hands on deck at the Woodgate Men’s Shed stall as vis­i­tors lined up for some old-fash­ioned tucker.

Woodgate Men’s Shed pres­i­dent Col Ens­bey said the Easter Fair was a fan­tas­tic fundrais­ing op­por­tu­nity for the group as it manned the grills to serve up siz­zling sausages and mouth-wa­ter­ing steaks.

“We were here from 6.45am and it didn’t let up,” he said.

“Our steak was sec­ond to none and we had the best burg­ers in town.”

Mr Ens­bey said among the popular choices on the menu was the hum­ble ba­con.

“Last year we had a lot of peo­ple ask about break­fast,” he said.

Mr Ens­bey said the day out of­fered the mem­bers the op­por­tu­nity to so­cialise with the public and con­tinue the mate­ship that was so vi­tal to many of them.

“For some of the guys, be­ing a part of the Men’s Shed has given them new life,” he said.

“We have a guy with us whose wife has de­men­tia and so he’s been on his own.

“Now, we can’t keep him out of the shed and he’s out here help­ing to­day.”
