HMS 2508 July Article

Hi everyone out there in beautiful 2508! From Helensburgh past the Tops and on to Stanny, along the plain to Darkes Forest and down the coast to Coalcliff, and even further afield to ‘The Shire’, all of us from your Men’s Shed say ‘welcome back’! We are reopening the Shed and recommencing operations Serving Our Community on Monday the 6th of July.

We are now able to restart stalled projects, take on more commissions, assist 2508’s other Community groups and charities and help out people wherever we can. The blokes are very excited to be meeting again (so are their wives), and we have already had more men join up to enjoy a chat, a laugh, a dad joke and a cuppa. We are also grateful to the Cancer Council of Australia for their very helpful talk with us in June.

Being Covid-aware has not been as much of a burden as we imagined, and the Shed has simple rules and procedures in place to ensure all members and visitors are kept safe and well.

So why don’t you pop on in for a looksee? Or ladies, bring your man in and leave him for the day!

We are open Mondays and Tuesdays from 9am to 3pm, with more days to come as we get more members. It will be great to see you there.

We would love to meet you at the Shed.

199A Parkes Street Helensburgh 9-3 Monday and Tuesday and more days to come.
