It was a grand opening to the shed on Sunday 21st February with Senator Jim Molan, Andrew Constance MP, Kristy Mc Bain MP and Liz Ellis Mayor in attendance to wish us well on this new bold adventure.

 

The Greenhouse is ready for planting

Thanks to Julie and the late Peter Hartley, the Narooma Men’s Shed has a greenhouse.

Peter was a long standing member of the shed and a keen gardener at the old shed.

He and Julie decided to donate the new greenhouse to the new complex and it is greatly appreciated.

FROM THE HEART

By Uncategorized

Remember the fires? Last January a Hunter Valley miner, a mines supervisor, Pat Archer contacted the NAROOMA MEN’S SHED to see if they could act as a reception /distribution centre for a tools donation by the Glencore Bulga open cut miners of Ravensworth.

Narooma Men’s Shed knew things were happening but on April 3rd a truck rolled into town with six pallets of tools conservatively valued at $36,000. A massive donation of new and used tools.

How did this happen? Pat was asked; “well I was watching the box, saw the devastation caused by the fires and as I watched one report and I thought, hell the sheds are gone too. They will have no tools now. So we started the collection effort.
The maintenance manager at Ravensworth Darren Meyer, took up the cause and donations came from Atom Tool Supplies and Ausmech Industries totalling $15000, and together with miners sorting out their home sheds, six pallets arrived into the welcoming arms and smiles of Danielle and helpers at the Cobargo Relief Centre. The centre has taken on the job of reception/distribution as the Narooma men’s shed is closed due to the pandemic.

From a distance and from the heart, the kindness and concern of strangers has made a difference. The tools are already on their way to a wide group of affected people and their communities

A massive SHOUT OUT to the Bulga mob and their wonderfully generous contacts. You have lifted spirits down south as we go through these, the most testing of times in all our lives.

And so it Begins

Yes a small step forward today as the trees were trimmed down and all the material mulched and placed in front of the scout hall.

So next step is to start the earthworks.
