Men’s Shed – Re-Opening 2021

Best Wishes For 2021 to All Members and Their Families

Due to the limited attendance for our final clean-up day on Saturday 19 December we have been unable to finish the maintenance tasks that were scheduled for completion during the break. We currently have members working on these. Due to this delay, we are postponing the 2021 re-opening and will now re-open on the following dates:

Friday 29 January 2021

9am to 1pm

Saturday 30 January

10am to 4pm

These are our usual weekly opening hours and will continue during 2021 except for public holidays and long weekends, we will provide advice regarding these closer to the date they occur. All sessions are mixed and open to both men and women members.
