Our Shed is located at 35 Bonnington Street, (just off Norwood Street) Normanby, Dunedin, Otago, 9010. You will find us at the end of the street, just over the bridge.
We meet on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday mornings from around 9.30 am until 1.00 pm.
We have a membership of 45 and are currently full, although we do keep a waiting list. We do welcome other Sheddies to morning tea at 11am. Our Secretary is a mean baker and it might be our lucky day when he’s been out collecting goodies
Our shed was established in 2014 – Through the generosity of a local farmer and city councillor who supported us with a large farm shed for our use. We have been cleaning it up and upgrading it ever since. In the last couple of years we have completed a new roof (thanks to Lotteries!) and are building membership to undertake a wider range of projects in the community.
With the new roof, completed endwalls, and storage containers we have now set up our workshop. Our focus is on small woodworking projects along with small engineering, painting and general repair work. We work in the workshop and in the community.
Over the years we have built strong partnerships with local community agencies and not-for-profit providers, and tackled a huge range of projects that support our local community.
We are hugely appreciative of the support of businesses in our local community that make this possible, e.g. Bunnings and Gardens New World.
