The centrepiece is a big dolls’ house which was donated to the group half-|finished.

Members Les Hendon and George Bolin finished assembling and painting the house, which the group will raffle on November 29.

‘It comes empty and is extremely nice,’ spokesman Ron Slavin said.

Shedders are making toy wheelbarrows, blackboards, ironing boards and swan, elephant and horse rockers for sale at Spring in the Grove at Neerabup Primary School on Sunday, November 10, from 11am to 4pm.

The lovingly-made toys are suitable for two to 10-year-olds.

Joondalup Men’s Shed meets at the old Padbury SHS manual arts building, McGregor Drive weekdays, 8.30am to 3pm.

Activities include woodworking, welding, board games, darts, pool, jigsaw puzzles and socialising over a cuppa.

Every year, the group makes and donates hundreds of toys to charity.
