What’s the Men’s shed all about?
The old adage “Every man needs a shed” rings true for many of us. Whether it be a broom cupboard under the stairs where we can tinker with our photographic gear, or a 200m2 edifice where we can make almost anything with an array of welders, lathes, drill presses and many hand tools, the opportunity of getting our brains and hands to work together can be very satisfying.
However, for a variety of reasons, some of us may not have the the opportunity to create the shed we need. And even if we have a shed, we may be missing the atmosphere that we had in our former workplace where we could share our thoughts with friends around us.
The Bundeena Men’s Shed is being established to meet this need for the men of our community. Under the auspices of the Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA), the Bundeena Men’s Shed is one of some 700 sheds with a membership of around 70,000 throughout Australia. With the support of Governments and local Councils, Men’s Sheds are fulfilling an important community need.
