Marty’s shed to open its doors to vis­i­tors

Mansfield Courier - - WHAT’S ON -

MARTY Briscoe will take vis­i­tors into his ‘shed mu­seum’ and on a walk back in time on Satur­day, April 12 when he opens his back­yard for the Friends of St Joseph’s Church.

Mr Briscoe is well known around the district for hav­ing the big­gest and most amaz­ing collection of old wares and ma­chin­ery.

He will open his shed to the pub­lic – es­pe­cially those men who are in­ter­ested – as a fundraiser for the church.

St Joseph’s Catholic Church is sit­u­ated at Tolmie, near the sports ground and is cur­rently be­ing re­stored to its for­mer glory.

Dur­ing the Satur­day open­ing a sausage siz­zle will be held along with a raf­fle, pro­duce stall and af­ter­noon tea.

The orig­i­nal par­ish ‘au­then­tic con­vent spin­ning wheel’ will again spin be­tween 1pm and 2pm.

En­try is by gold coin do­na­tion and Briscoe’s ‘One Man’s Shed’ is sit­u­ated at 9 Ailsa Street, Mans­field – at the east­ern end of town.
