We enjoyed a fantastic chat about some of their woodworking projects and what they’ve gotten out of being part of the Men’s Shed movement. Their workshop invites all men to come and share skills and stories while developing friendships as they work together on projects that benefit themselves and the community.
They meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday (9am-2pm) and are located at 15 Battley Ave, The Entrance. They also take on repairs and small commission projects if you have furniture restorations or woodworking projects you’d like to discuss – Phone 4332 1023.
On the 29th of November 2013 shed members and their partners spent an enjoyable day traveling to Sydney by train, followed by a two-hour Sydney Harbour cruise aboard the Captain Cook Sydney 2000.
Both Sydney Transport and the cruise ship staff were very accommodating and this helped to ensure that everybody had a great day. The weather was a bit bleak but this didn’t dampen the attendees spirits.
Shed members Bruce and Rob have created a set of seven timber bin hoppers for The Entrance Town Centre Management. The hoppers are being placed at Memorial Park and The Boardwalk alongside the The Entrance channel.
Shed members recently participated in the Destash Market Day held at the Entrance Community Centre. The shed provided a sausage sizzle for market goers as well as a small garage sale of handmade wooden objects.
On Monday the 14th of October the shed was host to Scott Levi from 92.5 ABC Central Coast, who conducted an outside broadcast that morning. Scott interviewed a number of men’s shed members as well as John and Roy from the Central Coast Outreach Centre.
Shed member Geoff arrived at the shed this morning (2nd October 2013) to be greeted by Shannon Maclean from MAJARRA mobile massage. Since it was Geoff’s 70th birthday he was first in line for a massage.
Shannon is volunteering her services to The Entrance Men’s Shed one morning per month for neck and shoulder massages–a gesture that is warmly appreciated by all shed members.
We’d also like to thank shed member Michael’s partner (Doreen) for making a terrific birthday cake for Geoff.
