The men’s shed re­ceived fund­ing as part of the Govern­ment’s na­tional shed de­vel­op­ment pro­gram.

O’Con­nor MP Rick Wil­son also an­nounced $2250 in fund­ing for Cran­brook’s men’s shed to pur­chase a de­fib­ril­la­tor. “These men’s sheds of­fer sup­port to any lo­cal men who need a bit of space and some friendly, easy-go­ing com­pany,” he said.

“Men are of­ten the last ones to make their health and well­be­ing a pri­or­ity. It’s im­per­a­tive that we do what we can to en­sure they get the sup­port they need and de­serve.”
