In August the Clunes Men's Shed was inspected and approved for use by the Hepburn Council building inspector. Recent concreting made the floor level and safe so the Shed is now functional. There have been a number of people working behind the scenes for some time to get the shed to this stage, so many thanks for their efforts.
We are now trying to gather some tools and equipment for the Shed so that people using the Shed are able to make new items or repair the old for themselves, or for the benefit of Clunes and district community.
Currently we are gathering on a Wednesday at 2pm, but this day and time could easily be changed if there is one that would be suitable for more people. So please come along, bring a mate and see if there is something that interests you.
For further information, contact Lee Richardson 54632132 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org or via the Clunes Neighbourhood House.

brakes on." David Suzuki
