About sixty men from the various Men’s Sheds in the Greater Shepparton Council area gathered at Tatura Men’s Shed to share ideas and activities. They were very impressed with the facilities and particularly enjoyed the meal prepared by their members – hot soup & savouries on a chilly day. This was the first gathering and it is hoped that communication between groups will continue, enabling the sharing of equipment and the sources of useful material. A wide variety of skills, experience and knowledge are in each Shed, discussions between groups was helpful.
Many of the blokes expressed the value of comradeship and of support found in the Sheds. Some found help with various projects, some enjoyed participating in community projects, some were keen to develop new skills but all enjoyed contact with other men. Murchison Men’s Shed is open Wednesdays from 1 – 2:30 at the rear of the Neighbourhood House.
