Established 2012 MENZSHED NZ member since 2016
Location: this year (2023) the MenzShed will be moving from our temporary base of the Katikati College Tech Block, into our own purpose built shed being built in conjunction with our local council and two other community services. At this stage work is planned to start in March 2023 and the finished shell will be handed over in May, all going to plan.
Opening hours: Our shed is open Monday and Thursday 3:30pm to 6pm and Saturday 9am to Noon. Times often extend into the afternoon with six to twelve members present to enjoy fellowship and share activities. We also get extended hours during school holidays.
MenzShed Katikati was formed as an initiative by the Pakeke Lions Club of Katikati, located at the Heritage Museum 2012. Our shed accommodates an extensive range of machines and equipment.
Past projects have included four colourful seats for the recently restored Cherry Court in the town centre, information signs for parks and reserves, starling boxes (a Katch Katikati fund raising initiative), vermin trap boxes for the Aongatete Forest Trust, bee hive components, support for Kindergarten, and a host of continuing repairs for the public.
New members are always welcome.
