THE Mundaring Men’s Shed opened their new building in Jacoby Street this week with a barbecue to celebrate the official event.
In its sixth year of operation, The Mundaring Men’s Shed decided a new recreational building was needed to cater for those who weren’t necessarily into metalwork or woodwork.
Located at 3205 Jacoby Street, Mundaring, the new building will supplement the existing facilities.
Allan Pope said the extensions were made possible through the continued generosity of Lotterywest, Bendigo Bank, the Mundaring Shire and a number of local businesses. Westpac also donated to the project through their 2014 Perth Hills Bushfire Recovery Program, which was aimed at attracting members who were not wood or metal workers and needed a place to chill out and have some ‘blokes time’.
The new building is aimed at members who just wish to relax, play cards, darts, read, make models or do photographic and computer work.
There is also a sing-a-long group which meets every fortnight.
Regular excursions and monthly speakers are also part of what the Men’s Shed offers local members.
Plans are underway to have garden beds for those wishing to develop green thumbs.
New members are always welcome, so drop in for a cuppa. There is parking on site and there is also a bus stop just around the corner.
