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.

Recent News:  

We have just finished a huge October which included:

  • delivery of the beautiful hardwood conference table to Southern Oil
  • visit by Peter Burton of the Burpengary Men’s Shed
  • participating in National Seniors Month with two events
  • having a great morning tea at the Shed with a team from Shell’s QGC business
  • 10 year celebrations for Gladstone Men’s Shed birthday with a BBQ dinner

The web tab for “Photos” has been updated with all these latest happenings.  We have also included the November edition of QMSA’s Shed Chatter under the “Newsletters” tab.  Following Peter Burton’s visit, Darrel has also sent on their latest newsletter, so we have also added that under the “Newsletters” tab to enable you to see how other sheds operate – for example they have a lot of Bunnings BBQs but also their onion cutter looks interesting.

For November we have had a visit from our friends from the Gladstone Ports Corporation and then prepare for a busy night at St John’s Spirit Night with Christmas Carols at the marina stage on 24th November, then our own Christmas Party at the Shed on 4th December. 

For the keen ones, there is the Woodturners Society of Queensland Exhibition at Mt Cootha on 27th and 28th November.  You will find lists on the noticeboard for the Christmas Party on 4th December and the QMSA Shed Cluster Meeting to be held in Gladstone on Tuesday 18th January.  The shed will close for a Christmas break on Thursday 16th December and  reopening on 18th January with the zone cluster meeting to be held next door in the Darts Club.
