September 2508 Magazine HMS Article


If you’re a regular reader of the Shed’s activities in this magazine, you may recall ‘Shedman’. Perhaps you even recognised yourself. Shedman has been having a great time lately.

The Stanny Park life-savers flagpole is now flying high. Small furry animals (and bats) have new homes built and put into trees hither and yon. The physio’s patients are enjoying their new calf-stretchers. Cheese and dip are enjoyed off lovely timber boards, placed onto chable’s. (Ah, you say, what’s a ‘chable’?).  NINA’s golfers are happy. Kids are swapping books out of the Little Libraries (thanks Lilli!).

But more importantly, Shedman has been able to share his story with other blokes. He’s enjoyed quiet conversation about things that matter. The Stepping On course has improved his confidence and balance, and there’s been laughter and fun. So many good reasons to be there.

So that’s what’s happening at your Men’s Shed, where we love to have visitors pop in and say g’day; where we can turn your dream on paper into a reality of timber, metal and more.

Be great to have you visit the Men’s Shed stall at the Lions Club Country Fair, Charles Harper Park 26th October, and see our Men’s Health successes, our products, commissions for 2508 locals and lots of items for sale. And you can visit us at the CWA Festival of Flight, Stanwell Park 10 November.

And also, upcoming, our Shed Open Day; Saturday 16 November 9am to 2pm!

The Men’s Shed, 199A Parkes Street, Mondays and Tuesdays 9am to 3pm.

(‘Chable’ – small furniture item made from recycled timber – if you sit, it’s a CHair – if you put something on it, it’s a tABLE - CHABLE!)
