On Saturday 2nd March 2019, PPMSA hosted visiting AMSA management to meet with our members and other shedders to share experiences and discuss matters of importance in the continual development of Men’s Sheds in Australia.
Members of other sheds from Brighton, Melbourne, Bentmoor and Forest Hill inspected our shed, talked to members and joined us for lunch.
It is clear from the other “shedders” feedback, that we should be very proud of what PPMSA has achieved. They were all impressed with what they saw.
Visiting AMSA management included Marty Leist (Event & Volunteer Coordinator) and Stuart Torrance (Mens Health Project Officer). Marty provided the following feedback:
“The atmosphere was warm, welcoming, relaxed, and enlightening. Just what we had hoped for and ….the way it should be. Stuart and I also gained an abundance of invaluable feedback to take back with us as well as making some great connections. We do hope that we can organise something similar again soon and would look forward to seeing everyone again.”
Thank you to everyone who helped on the day.
