Men’s Shed hold­ing man style sale

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - REXINE HAWES

This Satur­day the Mata­mata Men’s Shed is hold­ing a man-style garage sale and sausage siz­zle.

The items on sale will be a plethora of tools, which have been do­nated or be­queathed and are now sur­plus to re­quire­ments, but still in great con­di­tion.

‘‘We stand by ev­ery­thing we are sell­ing. It has all been checked by a qual­i­fied elec­tri­cian,’’ said Mata­mata Men’s Shed chair­man Bill Hughes.

‘‘We started out by ac­cept­ing char­i­ta­ble gifts, but we are at the stage where we have se­lected the best and now have sur­plus.’’

The garage sale will also help meet day-to-day run­ning costs of the Men’s Shed, which has re­cently gone from two-to-three days a week.

Hughes said if any­one has ever been in­ter­ested in join­ing the Men’s Shed, the garage sale is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to get out and meet the blokes and ask any ques­tions.

They are al­ways keen to in­vite more men to join.

Over the past four weeks, the mem­bers have been build­ing wooden toys such as aero­planes and trucks and also in­door and out­door fur­ni­ture for dis­play, which can be made to or­der.
