Gladstone Men’s Shed Inc. has been established in Gladstone for over 8 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.
The shed is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 8am to 12noon for workshop activities and Friday from 8am for 1/2 hour light exercise at 8.30 and a social morning after morning tea, if anyone is interested. 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.

November is still not finished but the Gladstone Men’s Shed has had several memorable moments already – we welcomed the news from the Gladstone Regional Council approving the addition of 22 Moura Crescent to our existing lease for 18 Moura Crescent – we took our health & wellbeing story to the CDC bus depot as part of Movember – Craig Walker and the management team from Gladstone Ports Corporation visited for lunch with a view of our shed and activities – we experienced the generosity of the community with Gladstone Chamber of Commerce and Industry donating over $4,000 for new tooling from their Best in Business Awards. November was also special for several great morning tea times supplied by each our long term for supporters at QGC, Donna and everybody at St Johns School and a grateful customer, Marguerita Dobrinin. A big THANK YOU to members, supporters and all participants for helping to make it a great November and Movember for us, photos of all this can be found under our “Recent Photos” tab.
