Men’s Sheds doing local good
THE Australian Men’s Shed Association has officially launched 2017 Men’s Shed Week in partnership with the Bipartisan Friendship Group of Men’s Sheds at Parliament House.
“Men’s Sheds aren’t just about building toys and fixing furniture; Men’s Sheds are building communities and fixing lives,” said Australian Men’s Shed Association executive officer David Helmers at the launch.
The second annual Men’s Shed Week, themed doing local good, is to showcase the work of local communities.
“The benefits of Men’s Sheds extend well beyond the shed – activities at the shed support local people, groups and organisations and bring people together in ways that strengthen communities,” said Mr Helmers.
Men’s Shed Week runs until October 1.
