The Woodend Mens Shed is back up and running after a disrupted year in 2020 due to Covid 19 restrictions.
Now operating out of their new premises at 988 Black Forest Drive (the former site of the Black Forest sawmill) the Shed members are looking forward to an enjoyable and productive 2021.
After commencing a move from their previous location at Bupa Woodend in March 2020 the members found themselves unable to access their new premises due to lockdown , but by November small numbers were able to meet to start the process of getting things in place and working in time for the new year.
Much effort has gone into making sure the shed is a Covid safe space and there is ample room for both activities and social interaction.
The Woodend Mens Shed prides itself on being a place where men of all ages can meet for a cuppa and a yarn with other men from a variety of backgrounds.
There is opportunity to learn new skills, pass on old skills to others and contribute to community endeavours at the same time as enjoying the company of other men.
The Shed is open each Monday and Wednesday from 9 until 12 and welcomes inquiries from prospective new members.
Plenty of opportunity exists to open the Shed at other times if sufficient interest was found , to cater for men unable to attend at the existing times.

We look forward to seeing you!
