Belconnen Community Men's Shed

Men helping men build a better community

Shed as it stands

Awning, roof

Gordon is looking for 5 or 6 volunteers to help the roofers put the roof on our new awning on Wednesday 22nd Feb approx 7:30 start.

If you can help please let Gordon know you are coming.

For those helping you will be rewarded with a nice BBQ breakfast.

You don't have to go up ladders just move stuff around and pass it up to the professionals



Bus Depot Markets

The shed has a table booked for the Bus Depot Markets on teh 25th March (getting close). So we are asking all members to start putting together things we can sell at the market. At this stage we are very low on stocks of everything. Cutting boards, bowls, scroll saw puzzles, boxes, pens, Lazy Susans (not Mals wife by the way).

Anything you can make that we can sell with proceeds going to the Shed.

Start producing !!!!

We will soon be setting an area aside to gather everthing that we can take.

This is a selling stall not a display and we need stock!

Look at the size of these crowds were going to need lots of stuff to sell


we will be asking for volunteers to help man the table soon.

this could raise lots for the Shed.



First Aid Officers/training

The Shed has funding to conduct a first aid course for shed members (this was a grant that we need to spend on first aid training not new tools unfortunately). If you interested please let Mal know so he has some idea of numbers.

No it doesn't mean you have give Gordon the kiss of life ! I don't think he is dead yet anyway.

Who knows you could save a Shed Member
