RESIDENTS have the opportunity to bond with their children over the construction of a billy cart at the Vincent Men’s Shed.

The Shed will open its doors for a parents day to allow budding billy cart builders to bring materials and make the vehicle in preparation for a planned Billy Cart Derby Day in North Perth in early next year.

Shed secretary Peter Sherlock encouraged parents to attend.

“The Shed is hoping that sufficient parents and their children will come along and make their own billy cart for entry into the Derby Day fun,” he said.

“We are happy to open the shed and provide the use of the shed equipment and staff resources every second Sunday of the month and followed up with a sausage sizzle for attendees and family members.”

He said the shed was open for parents to begin other projects during open hours.

“The parents would be required to provide sufficient materials to make up whatever they decide to make whilst the shed can provide plans, guidance and some expertise in construction of same,” he said.

He said membership of $75 for a year per parent was required.

The shed will be open Sunday, October 8 from 9am until 12.30pm.
