Welcome to Erina Community Men’s Shed!
To provide men with a safe-haven where they can relax and enjoy the company of other men in a non-threatening environment. Also, to give the men attending the opportunity to undertake a hobby or activity enjoy a beaut morning tea.
The shed is open three mornings a week, from 8:30am to 12:30pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
What Do We Offer?
We have woodworking, metalworking and gardening at our shed. If you bring skills in these areas that’s great, but those without these skills are especially welcome to come and learn.
We do one community project each year and also some of our members work with TAD Disability Services where we go out to homes of disabled people to look at solutions to help make their daily lives easier. We then bring the ideas back to the shed and “make it happen”.
Once a month we have a day where we do a full clean-up of the shed, followed by a BBQ.
If you just want to come in for morning tea and a chat, that is also fine. Some of the men bring in work from home when they don’t have the tools to do it or need some help with a project. We also can do work for the public for a donation to help defray our running costs. We prefer people provide their own materials for this and can provide some advice on where they may be obtained.
We are all volunteers and every cent we raise goes into the shed.
Membership is $50 per year and we also ask a gold coin donation for morning tea and our monthly BBQ. In times of hardship this can be waived.
