Amberley Menz Shed

Established 2014  MENZSHED NZ member since 2015

We currently operate from a farm shed and have a relatively well-equipped woodworking workshop and a couple of storage areas.  We have the use of our current premises for the next 3 – 5 years.

We really need more members to reach a “critical mass” to allow us to take on more and potentially bigger community projects and for fundraising purposes.  Our medium-term goal is to build our own Shed that is located near to (or in) Amberley township and has a significant area for members and visitors parking, space for a storage container or two and room to expand as our membership grows. 

We are currently in discussion with Hurunui District Council regarding a site in the township. Once we receive confirmation from the council about a site, we will be able to approach funding and philanthropic organisations to request a grant.

We are on the lookout for a suitable site to erect a cost-effective farm type shed that can be lined and improved as our membership increases without putting a financial burden on members.

Our intention for our 2021 year is to have a membership drive this year to increase our MenzShed numbers.

Shed open: Wednesdays and Saturdays 9am until 12 noon.
