Incorporated in March 2012 and moved temporarily to premises which had been a live Kiwi house.
The Whangarei Men’s Shed has a reputation for ‘thinking outside the square’ and purchased the old Whangarei Railway Station in 2013.
Not only is the Station a multiple workshop area for the pursuit of an array of pastimes and projects, but it also forms a “Work in Progress” challenge in its own right. The W.M.S. has set itself a target for restoring the interior of the old station (badly deteriorated) with the guidance of an architect employed by the Shed and the National Historic Places Trust.
Here’s a feature from Seven Sharp program 20/3/23.
We undertake other community work too – here is a feature story concerning pest traps.
The railway “Shed” is open on 9:30 to 3:00 Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
