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…

With the commemoration of 175 years of Settlement for Mount Pleasant in 2018, it has been decided by the Mens’ Shed group 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 has taken management of the project which is in the vicinity of $3,000 in cost. A third of this has been committed by the Mount Pleasant Mens’ Shed, with donations from other members of the community and groups to make up the remainder. If you would like to sponsor a part of the rail track, or the engine which sits in place, or one of the buildings and flora that is being created, then contact the Mens Shed treasurer, John Bowd and discuss this with him.  Check out the latest MP Beat for more recent photos of this project…
