Saturday 6th of June marked the re-opening of our Men’s Shed. The committee spent some time in the proceeding week putting together procedures for cleaning, sign-in, and health requirements and the day went smoothly with everyone playing their part.
Given the ongoing risk associated with Covid 19 we would ask anyone who is not a member who would like to join, to call before they come (Wednesday and Saturday 10.00am to 4.00pm) and arrange their visit with the duty officer please.
Strathfield Mens Shed provides a facility that empowers men of all ages to socialise and do things in a practical way. Participation is encouraged to develop good self-esteem, respect for each other and to support our local community projects.
Members may learn and share skills such as woodworking, wood turning, metalwork and other hand crafts, all in a safe manner.
Mens Sheds are places of encouragement for all to take an interest in their own health and well-being. Good health is also based on many factors and becoming a member of a Mens Shed gives a person that safe and busy environment where many of these things can be found in an atmosphere of old-fashioned mateship. And, importantly, there is no pressure.
You can just come and have a yarn and a cuppa if that is all you’re looking for.
Members come from all walks of life – the bond that unites them is often they are people with time on their hands and who would like to do something meaningful with that time.
If a man’s shed is his castle, then the Strathfield Mens Shed is his kingdom. If you would like to share your skills or just to have a chat, then drop by.
All visitors are welcome.
We are normally open Wednesday and Saturdays 10am – 4pm.
However due to the covid 19 lockdown the shed is currently closed until further notice.
The modern Mens Shed is an updated version of the shed in the backyard that has long been a part of Australian culture.
