Melbourne Men’s Shed (the Shed) continues to grow both in numbers and in meeting its basic objectives.
With the number of members now approaching 90, the Shed is looking to expand its hours to cater for everyone. While the Shed has excellent woodworking facilities, chairman Andrew Stefanetti is quick to point out the variety of activities available.
There is a kitchen producing excellent meals fortnightly under the guidance of qualified chef member Graham, computers for general use with assistance available, kayaking and digital photography. Also, a Heart Foundation-approved walking group operates weekly and undertakes an extra-long exploratory walk monthly.
The Shed is slowly cementing itself in the community, with many service requests successfully completed. Examples include the repair of the Bureau of Meteorology’s historic instrument boxes, toys produced each year for the Royal Children’s Hospital, local schools and charities benefiting from repairs and new small items such as planter and sports equipment boxes constructed at an affordable cost. Members can also work on their own small projects.
At the heart of Men’s Sheds is the objective of improving members’ health, mental and physical.
