The Sandy Point Community Men’s Shed project is thriving. We are an incorporated entity with a formalised committee structure, ABN, bank account and growing membership. We’ve been operating now for over 3 years and meet on a monthly basis plan shed projects and discuss ways that the group can assist with Community activities.
On the construction front; the joint facility shed which together with the Men’s Shed will also house a new Marine Rescue vessel for Shallow Inlet/Waratah Bay is complete to lock up and has been officially opened as the storage facility for our rescue boat. Construction of the internal meeting room, kitchen and bathroom facilities will start soon.
Funding so far has come from State Government grants but we will need to pursue strategies to raise further funds for the purchase of tools and equipment for the shed. We continue to pursue any avenues we can for fund raising but would welcome your ideas for future fund raising initiatives..
