All money given to Elermore Vale Men’s Shed is put back into the running of the men’s shed and any left over is put into our community projects, caring for the needy and elderly repair work. No money is given to members, except if they are authorised to buy supplies fo our shed. All grant money is spent on what we applied for.

A We are open 5 days a week. Monday to Friday 9.00am to 4.00pm but most members come along in the morning and taper off as the day goes on. Sometimes we are there all day, depends on what we are doing at the time. Last one out locks the shed up.
