Belconnen Community Men's Shed

Men helping men build a better community

Shed as it stands

Thanks to the 20 odd who turned up, it was a great turn out.

Yes we had some odd people and many normal hard workers too.

So we got a lot done: (Paul has updated pictures up on the website

  • Paving out the front was finished,
  • fence round the back of the community centre was put in,
  • side of the shed was made level and mulched,
  • tools were sorted (there are more coming this Saturday),
  • think we achieved some other things too, but I was too busy to notice (sorry to those hard workers).

It was a great effort and we had workers there until almost 5pm. After talking to a couple of them since, we were all in the same boat the next day, Stuffed.

But it was worth it and great things were achieved.


Then on Tuesday a couple of survivors went in to cement the edge of the pavers to keep them in place. Guess what they found when they got there .........

Yes the power has been connected, and the light switches in the shed now work. Power points are still isolated at the circuit breakers, we don't get our certificate of installation until next Thursday. 

For those that feel like a walk round the neighbourhood, we have about 1.5 thousand flyers to distribute before the opening. If you know of a notice board somewhere please take a couple and pin them up. If you walk the dog then why not help distribute flyers while your out and about.

The church has been contacted about our parking on both sides of the street, so when coming to the shed can we use the church carpark, or only park on the one side of the street. I would recommend the opposite side of the street because the close side will eventually be a driveway.

I know its a pain, and I know what we are doing is legal, but we are part of the community and need to work within that community.
