Shed and facilities.
The Picton Men’s Community Shed was established in 2009, and as at August 2015 had 24 financial members. The group operates from a shed with a floor area of approx 100 – 150 square metres, and is well provisioned with hand tools, power tools, woodworking machinery, a metal-turning lathe and welding gear.
Members work on a wide and varied range of activities, some of which include classic boat restoration, knife and tool sharpening, furniture making and repairs, off-site community tasks, propagating plants and gardening and, of course, their own private projects, too.
There is a strong emphasis on men’s health and well-being.
The Shed is open Wednesdays, 9 am – 4 pm, and Saturdays, 9 am – 12 noon.
The Picton Shed is always keen to attract new members. Similarly, visitors to Picton, or those passing through, are encouraged to drop in and look around. They’ll receive a warm welcome.
The Picton Men’s Community Shed is located on the PowerHouse Reserve site, 8 Wairau Road, immediately south of the railway crossing, and adjacent the skateboard park.
