Membership…

 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.

 


Mount Pleasant Mens Shed were runner-up in the Mount Pleasant Street Parade 2013… and the above shed has become their icon… watch out for it at any community event…
The shed was built to promote the Mount Pleasant Mens Shed Inc. and reinforce the message that they have yet to secure their own shed, however it has now become their advertising…

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.
