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.

September started with the QGC film crew visiting the shed early one morning for some Shed footage that we will hopefully see later and we must thank QGC for the terrific morning tea provided afterwards. Then our first toolbox meeting after a Committee Meeting took place to update all members on happenings and that seem to be successful to warrant continuing in future months. After that we had our Father’s Day Breakfast on Friday 6th September, Councillors Peter Masters and Rick Hansen provided information on GRC’s concerns with health issues plus Brian Polkinghorne and Hanna from Physio & Fitness gave us a few ideas to think about for the future. If we ignore the bacon then it was a very healthy morning and as always, you will find some photos under the “Recent Photos” tab. Our program for the Open Day and Garage Sale on Saturday 19th October is out for public view and we will keep improving on what is already shaping up to be a busy and great day. Members can think if they want any items from home sold for the benefit of the shed or sold or for themselves with the shed taking a commission and we have put out an appeal if some of the ladies could also help on the day.
Bargara’s latest newsletter has just been received and you will note their continuing frustration of trying to get a permanent home for their Shed. They also have a few references to the Deductible Gift Recipient status being extended to Sheds from the Tax Office next July, that was in the back of our minds during our current review of the Constitution, so which we will be voting to adopt changes in November.
