News from Wise­mans Ferry Com­mu­nity Men’s Shed

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News -

What a beau­ti­ful day Mother Na­ture turned on for us all on Easter Satur­day which was per­fect for our mar­ket stalls. There was a gen­er­ous crowd about the town and mar­kets and we had a good day. We have a few or­ders to fill and some more stock to re­plen­ish. The next stall will be at the Bowl­ing Club on the June long weekend, which is just around the cor­ner. This is al­ways a bonser weekend with plenty of ac­tiv­ity hap­pen­ing in the Wise­mans Ferry Vil­lage so mark it down in your di­aries, Mon­day 13 June and be sure to pop down to see us.

We have had a re­ply from Coun­cil in re­gards to our Constructi­on Cer­tifi­cate and we now have some more con­di­tions to meet be­fore ap­proval. Some of th­ese are eas­ily met, while oth­ers are quite chal­leng­ing. There is cer­tainly a lot to con­sider when try­ing to build a shed and we are rapidly learn­ing about the en­vi­ron­ment.

We are go­ing to need a lot of com­mu­nity help once constructi­on starts so any plumbers, elec­tri­cians, con­creters, builders, land­scap­ers who could do­nate any ma­te­ri­als, time and ex­per­tise, please con­tact us. We would love to hear from you. We have a gov­ern­ment grant to pur­chase the ac­tual shed ma­te­ri­als but then our funds are thin. We are work­ing hard on try­ing to raise what we need, but your help will make a huge dif­fer­ence. For those com­pa­nies that can help us out, we will be dis­play­ing your work in the heart of Wise­mans Ferry for all to see and will proudly dis­play your com­pany de­tails on a plaque on the shed, vis­i­ble to all.

Mean­while, we are still op­er­at­ing from our tem­po­rary site, each Tues­day 9.30am – 3.30pm at 2811 River Road, Wise­mans Ferry. You can con­tact us by phone 0448833781 (Adrian) 0410442275 (Robin Hitch­cock) or email [email protected]
