27 April 2016 Men's Shed Take First Step in Building New Home

Stage One of the new Men’s Shed is to be officially launched by Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight, on Thursday April 28 at 11.30am.

 

“The Men’s Shed provides an important service and Council are pleased to be able to provide them with support.” said Cr Knight. “This is the first stage of creating a bigger and better home for the Men’s Shed so that they can expand the support they provide to our community.”

 

The Men’s Shed provides a meeting place for men of all ages – an updated version of the backyard shed. It has become a powerful tool in addressing mental health and well-being, helping men to become valued and productive members of the community.

 

The new shed, when completed will provide a wider range of activities as well as a show room for open days, car parking, office space, barbecue facilities and a communal area.

 

The next stage of the construction has been funded under Council’s Community Capital Infrastructure Grants and works will secure the foundations, provide a concrete slab and the purchasing of some building materials.

 

Council are also providing support through the provision of the site for the new facility and project management and construction services.
