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.
ADDITIONAL DAY IN 2022, the shed is now open for light exercises on Friday mornings 8am to 9am with time for a cuppa afterwards. This has been assisted by a National Shed Development Grant to fund a Gladstone physio.to conduct the classes, so men come along and try it out.

Coming up next week we have an event to celebrate Father’s Day and as the 4th – 10th September happens to be Men’s Shed Week, the luncheon will be at Flavours Marina on Monday 5th September and there will be a limited menu for $19 per person with some great lucky door prizes. Numbers for the event will close off this Thursday 1st September. We have also committed to an Open Day at our Shed on Saturday 15th October, with planning to be completed this month so we can start promoting the Day. The Open Day will have the usual stalls, some displays by the shed and other activity groups plus free food, so some volunteers will be needed from the shed to make it a great day for all.
The BBQs will then get busier in October and November as we are booked in for a luncheon at the university and St John’s Spirit Night at the marina.
