Belconnen Community Men's Shed

Men helping men build a better community

Shed as it stands

Whats been happening this week?

Glad to see more people turning up to help out, please perserve it takes a little while to work out how the kaos comes together to get work done, but there are other things (bad jokes and the like that happen before, during and after the work).

Work has continued at the working bee's and it although it doesn't look like much has changed it has. Trimmings round the kitchen and batheroom have occurred (still some more to do). Speaking of things to do, this week we hope to prepare what was going to be the white board wall for painting (we will put up a real white board), supports for the haning lighting should start going in too.

Outside of the working bees the new metre box for the 3phase power has been installed on the side of the community centre so progress on power supply is in the wind.

Fund rasing opportuntiy:

Evening Mark

Further to our phone conversation earlier in the week here are the details for the MBC Carols in the Park.  The aim once again this year is to host a community outreach event to celebrate Christmas.

The Carols are on Saturday 7 December 2013, in the park beside the Page Church centre.

We're inviting people to come for a family picnic in the Park from 6.30pm (Busy Bees are organising kids activities).  Carols will start around 7.30pm.

It would be great if you could use the opportunity not only to sell sausages and drinks but also to promote the Men's Shed.  The Church has marques and BBQs, but it'd be good if the men can organise sausages, bread, drinks and whatever other BBQ extras are required.  You are welcome to keep the proceeds of sales for the Men's Shed.

Gardeners still wanted.

It appears that it takes more than installing a tap for the Garden to grow!

So if your keen on putting in green things please come along and feel free to have a dig or try out the tap. Not sure what gardeners do myself, I just seem to plant things that mature into sticks.


Design suggestion for the Throne:

 Looks like we could be in need of a tiler to complete this one!


Congratulations to Ian who has just become a Grandfather to bouncing baby boy up in Queensland. No doubt he will be showing us photos next week after his visit.
