Sponsored Barbeque Elermore Vale Fruit Bowl

Our sponsored barbeque held on the 29/05/2012 went without a  hitch, even the persistent misty rain didnt damper the great time had by all, using a couple of well placed tarps  shielded us from the wind and rain, we held it under the new shelter amongst the plants trees and gardens and it worked out fantastic.

How To Start Up A Men’s Shed

Posted by Dave Corbett on May 30, 2012 with No Comments as , ,

How To Start Up A Men’s Shed In Your Local Area

One of the best ways to start up a Men’s Shed is to get local interest happening in your area. Put a posters in local shopping centres and do letter box drops to get more noticed. You can get your local clubs and other charity groups interested in helping you start up a Men’s Shed. If you are looking for professional support to help you start up a Men’s Shed then I would recommend you contact the Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA). They can assist you with how to get started forming a Men’s Shed in your local area. The AMSA offer a manual that can help you get going and offers you ideas to do what is needed to start up a Men’s Shed. There is no cost involved in joining the AMSA, but you will need to get insurance to help protect your new members and this is where the association can help you. They have a national insurance policy that no other insurance company could possible hope to match. Read the rest…

Mens Shed Communications Between Sheds

Men’s shed communications is very important to all Mens Sheds. The question is why is this so important, and the answer is simple. Online communications for Mens Sheds whether you belong to a national association or just a independent Men’s Shed. Here is why it is so important.

Using the online forum for Men’s Sheds is important, tell people about your Men’s Shed, what you do, when you meet, and how many days a week you are open, is all important information you want to get out there online. Sell yourself, let people know what you are all about. Advertise your up and coming events. Nobody else is going to do this for you.

Gardening Services – Our Shed

Gardening services for our shed is there for the elderly and disabled. We need to point out that we do not do this for any person . Only if you have no family support or lack of finance do we come out on a once off to help you with the mowing. Sorry about this but our service is run by volunteers and we don’t try to compete or deprive our local companies of any work. If you have family that can do your lawn or can afford to pay to get it done, then we are not available to help you out. Being a non-profit charity we hope to get a small donation for the help we offer but it is not compulsory.

Barbeques – Fridays A Success

Barbeques Fridays has been declared a success, and we are planning a lunch time barbeques every Friday at lunch time. Drew one of our members said it was a great idea to hold one every week, all work and no play does make us a bit boring. Mr Gary Rose from the Blue Gum Hills Mens Shed joined us for lunch on Friday and we invited him to come back again and bring other members from their Men’s Shed next time he came over to see us. It was suggested by Gary that we attend their next market day and we will bring this up at our next monthly meeting.
