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.
ADDITIONAL DAY IN 2022, the shed is now open for light exercises on Friday mornings 8am to 9am with time for a cuppa afterwards. This has been assisted by a National Shed Development Grant to fund a Gladstone physio.to conduct the classes, so men come along and try it out.

A couple of us will head to the Clintion State School on Tuesday 16th August to promote our Early Childhood Services Project and by the end of August we will need to have come up with an event to promote Mental Health Week in October. In the meantime we had planned to have an event to celebrate Father’s Day and as the 4th – 10th September happens to be Men’s Shed Week, the luncheon will be at Flavours Marina on Monday 5th September and there will be a limited menu for $19 per person.
The visit by the ARD German Television team on 4th August went very well, not only did they get some alternative views from the community about green energy, but they were also very impressed with our shed. As soon as we get a link to their recording, we will post it here for your viewing. There were a few good still shots of the TV visit with a few examples under our “Recent Photos’ tab as well as other recent updates.
We have just got around to updating all editions of various shed newsletters in the “Newsletters” tab and a read is recommended to see what is happening around the country in other sheds. More information will shortly be published on our Shed Open Day planned for Saturday 15th October as part of Mental Health Week.
