The Entrance Men’s Shed held its 2019 Annual General Meeting on the 5th of July 2019. All financial members were invited to attend, and a sausage sizzle was held afterwards to celebrate the new committee members.
The new shed Committee officeholders are: President – Bruce Crouch, Vice President – Ken Yeatman, Secretary – Terry Anderson, Treasurer – Bob Ihlein. Other committee members are Alan Brown, Rob Eschbank, Keith Smith and Richard Threlfo.
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.
