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 and currently offers activities for metal and wood working and we constantly look for opportunities to conduct other activities.

Think we set a record for the length of the Management Committee meeting called for 19th May. Our Shed will reopen on 26th May, but to finish projects previously started we will nominate members who are required to come in on the Tuesdays and Thursdays of each week. For the Wednesday, we are happy to receive names of members who would like to come in and will do a roster, as for all days we have to keep numbers below 10.
The Management Committee will again meet on 9th June and we will have a new roster for all Shed days after 16th June when the maximum will increase to 20 members in the shed at any one time. By 14th July we should be able to welcome all of our membership back into the Shed and plan to hold our AGM the same day and put on a lunch as a welcome back. We still need to lock everything into place but planning on a weekly exercise session conducted by Gladstone Physio starting Friday 17th July and after a morning tea, might complete the morning with a game of cards.
Other dates of note include Friday 31st of July for our Christmas in July once again, Monday 7th September for a Father’s Day Breakfast at Savour the Marina and lock in our Christmas Party for Saturday 5th December. In the quiet months we will try for CPR training with the ladies also attending and you never know we may break-out to somewhere else as well.
