Opening news from the shed Saturday 3 August 2019:

Opening August 2019

Thanks to everyone who attended our very successful Open Day on Saturday, to those who signed up as members, and especially to those who have volunteered to be supervisors, and others who are willing to become committee members.

A gold coin donation is welcome each time you attend, to help with the running costs, and the tea & coffee.  Annual membership is $20.

There is much planning to do to get the shed fully operational.  We have some equipment already, and are putting funding applications in place to help us buy machinery such as a drop saw, bench saw, thicknesser, dust extractor system, etc.

We need to acquire hand tools, power tools, and other items such as ear muffs and safety glasses, so would appreciate any (good quality and condition) equipment donations.

One of the first projects will be replacing the steps up to the main door, and adding a ramp for disabled access.  A number of organisations have indicated that we can help them with making or repairing things, so there will no shortage of projects.  We have even inherited a small boat (tucked in behind the main shed) in need to repair!  If you have ideas on future projects, please bring them along.

Committee

We also welcome anyone wanting to just socialise, see what we are doing, have a chat, and a cup of tea.  There is plenty of space for other activities, reading, darts, snooker/pool, and board games.
