Gladstone Men’s Shed Inc. has been established in Gladstone for 10 years now and is affiliated with both the Australian Men’s Shed Association and the Queensland Men’s Shed Association. Our new building at 18 Moura Crs, Barney Point, has been equipped and currently offers activities for metal and wood working and we constantly look for opportunities to conduct other activities.
The shed is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 8am to 12noon for workshop activities. A CovidSafe Plan is in place and whilst we do not expect to exceed the visitors numbers allowed on site, we do ask all visitors to sign in and out, obey all the published rules of our CovidSafe Plan and do not come to the Shed if feeling sick or unwell.

While we may be in Autumn, there are a few things heating up at the shed. The CNC Router room is built and is currently being painted and the project team are working on getting all the electronics to come together – just cannot wait to see the router in use! However we can still do things the old fashion way, we have made a commitment to attend Ecofest and have given members the challenge of making an item out a pallet to sell/display at our stall on Sunday 6th June – there will be a good prize for the best item!
Before then we have our Mother’s Day Breakfast at Flavours Marina on Monday 10th May, the list is on the board for names, and on Friday 4th June we will have our morning tea and a Hugh Jackman movie at Gladstone Cinemas for Queensland Day celebrations, this day is open to both members and public for a great price of $10 per person. June is going to be busy, we also have the CPR and Defibrillator training for Tuesday 15th June and the Australian Men’s Shed Association have a Living Well Expo in Bundaberg on Friday 18 June.
Going on around all that is a visit by the board and staff of the Calliope & District Community Bank (Bendigo Bank in Calliope and Kin Kora) on Saturday 10th April and our AGM has been planned for 27th April. Don’t forget to participate in the AGM you will need to be a financial member, we are approaching 50% who have now paid the $50 annual fee due on 1st April, so thank you to those prompt members and a hurry-up reminder for others.
