Shepparton News - - NEWS -

The Mooroopna Men’s Shed will re­ceive $2537 to buy new com­put­ers, as­so­ci­ated soft­ware, a wi-fi con­nec­tion and new blinds as part of a Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment grant.

The Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment pro­vided Aus­tralian Men’s Shed As­so­ci­a­tion with $5.1 mil­lion through 2018-19 to sup­port the na­tional net­work of Men’s Sheds.

‘‘The Mooroopna Men’s Shed is an im­por­tant part of the Mooroopna com­mu­nity and it of­fers the op­por­tu­nity for men, par­tic­u­larly as they get older, to con­nect with each other and so­cialise,’’ Fed­eral Mem­ber for Mur­ray Damian Drum said.

‘‘Which is a good way to help pre­vent iso­la­tion and other health con­di­tions.’’

Men’s Sheds pro­vide a sense of com­mu­nity, a safe and friendly en­vi­ron­ment where men can work on mean­ing­ful projects at their own pace, in their own time and in the com­pany of their mates.

● De­tails of all suc­cess­ful grant re­cip­i­ents from the Na­tional Shed De­vel­op­ment Pro­gramme fund­ing round are avail­able at www.mensshed.org
