MENZSHED NZ Status: Complimentary Hosting

Mike, Ross, Neil, John, Ian, and Dave.

The steering committee for the Whangamata Community Menzshed met 10 February with Dr Neil Bruce from the Hamilton Community Shed. We are extremely grateful that Neil gave us so much time and shared his wealth of experience and research.  Thanks to Neil’s visit, the steering committee have a good grasp of the tasks to form a shed.

The steering committee will meet again to form a timeline towards establishment, call a public meeting to gauge community interest and start the search for a suitable building. Our ‘cunning plan’ is to present to the community our research thus far and endeavour to elicit local knowledge on suitable buildings and equipment to at least begin operations.
