Gladstone Men’s Shed Inc. has been established in Gladstone for over 7 years 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 for our metal and wood work activities to resume on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8am to 12pm, with the shed opening for the same hours on Wednesday morning to work on your own projects as no activities will be offered by the coordinators.
The Shed is currently closed for the Christmas break until Tuesday 14th January 2020.

Recent updates to this blog include new additions in “Newsletters” for each contributions by AMSA and QMSA and of course we are continually updating our photos.
2019 has come to a busy end for this Shed and trust members enjoyed the annual Christmas Party where the food was plentiful and terrific, thanks to the ladies who made the sweets for after dinner. The barby then went well for our last day, but a few disappeared to celebrate the new cubby at Rainbow Valley, the Observer printed a good story which was a good conclusion to the many surprises in that project.
2020 is well in hand and already during the break we have visited QGC who are going to donate some useful items to the Shed in January, we have just signed up for the first instalment on our Poet’s Day to be held on 5th June and we have tried our chances at a regional grant for a desktop computer to control the Electronic Router Project. That project alone should encourage interest from all over as we build our own Router. Speaking of projects, the Gladstone Ports Contribution has just paid $7,000 for the Early Childhood Services Project to continue throughout 2020 – our sincere thanks to all at GPC for their continuing assistance over the years.
