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.

 

Built prior to the building of an actual Shed this Quirky Shed was used for promotional duties. It continues to do so at various community events.

 

The 707 engine was built as part of the commemoration of the centenary of the passenger railway coming to Mount Pleasant in 1918. It was entered into the Mount Pleasant and Lobethal 2018 Street parades.

All three creations were crafted from recycled material from the first fund-raising efforts of dismantling a shed at Woodside.

The Mount Pleasant Men’s Shed prides themselves on their ability to recycle materials. The various creations have won prizes in the Mount Pleasant and Lobethal Street Parades from 2013 to today…

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.  The completed 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.
