Membership is open to any interested person.
The group meet regularly at the Mens’ Shed and they welcome any new members who wish to join them in this endeavour. Your input is only as much as you are able to give, from moral support, to heavy physical work and anything in between. Those with computer skills will have a chance to use them, as will those who simply want to have a coffee, within a social atmosphere. Membership reinforces the need for such a group, so support these men in their endeavour to provide a great place for meeting, learning and fellowship.

Top honours were received at the Mount Pleasant Street Party for 2015, with the winning entry in the Parade being the Trojan Horse, created and built by John Bowd, on behalf of the Mens Shed. Coming in third was the Quirky Shed… check the detail here. It was decided to transport the Trojan Horse to the Lobethal Christmas Pageant… and the winner is… you guessed it… Mount Pleasant Mens Shed…
The Quirky Shed took a prize at the Mount Pleasant Street Parade in 2017… time for a new venture…
SHED CONSTRUCTION BEGAN IN 2016…
The Mens Shed members are often asked to help in the community….
With the commemoration of 175 years of Settlement for Mount Pleasant in 2018, the Mens’ Shed group decided to create a model of the former railway station land, which is now Talunga Park Recreation area. Paul Johnson is a model maker extraordinaire and took management of the project which was in the vicinity of $3,000 in cost. The Mount Pleasant Mens’ Shed, with donations from other members of the community and groups covered the cost of this project. Check out the MP Beat for more recent photos of this project… The almost complete model is now installed at the Wisteria Atrium at Talunga Park and can be viewed each Saturday morning when the Farmers’ Market is open or at any other time that the Atrium is in use.
