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 for light exercise and a social morning. 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.

Shed life continues as busy as usual, you will find new additions under “Newsletters” from each the AMSA and our friends down the road, Bargara. There are always a few good stories in AMSA’s “Shedder”and this time is a continuation of the great interest that the GG has in the shed movement. Meanwhile Bargara always have a nice spread of stories, but you will note their fees are now $5 a day (makes Gladstone’s $45 a year look good value) and they have visited Bundaberg’s new shed under construction. It was almost this time last year that Bundaberg visited us to see the good work we had done on our building.
Our weekly exercise sessions conducted by Gladstone Physio & Fitness are now under way starting at 8.30am sharp every Friday, it is a very enjoyable way to exercise and believe me nobody will overdo it. So we recommend you come down for a session, enjoy morning tea and if you wish stay on for a games morning afterwards – thanks very much to Sherry and Brian from Physio & Fitness and we hope to see more of “the boys” come down each week.
Our AGM is getting close on Tuesday 18th August, which will still enable us to meet our statutory reporting arrangements and allow sufficient time to issue notices including the pre-nomination of management committee members by the 4th August. Of course to partake in the AGM and also continue in shed activities we now ask that the annual membership fees of $45 be paid as soon as possible with over 50% of members now having paid up. We can accept cash or credit card at the Shed or direct deposit to BSB 084 662 Account 121 005 342. DON’T FORGET WE ARE STILL SUBJECT TO COVID19 REGULATIONS AND PLEASE FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS IN THE SHED TO KEEP EVERY ONE OF US SAFE!
