The Gladstone Men’s Shed is hosting a Queensland Men’s Shed Assoc activity on Tuesday 18th January, being a Capricornia Zone Cluster Meeting.

It is all aimed at “building better sheds” and we are gratified with the response of at least 11 sheds attending and approx. 80 shedders.  If your shed has not already done so, please email your rsvp to  It is not necessary to be a member of the QMSA to attend this cluster meeting, but as the Darts Hall is treated differently for the COVID rules, you will need to show the green tick on your phone.

To cater for this number the meeting will be held in the Darts Hall, but the Gladstone shed will also be open for normal activities on that day and we would expect significant interest from the visiting sheds in looking at our facilities.  To make the meeting attractive for shedders to travel from as far afield as Baffle Creek, Biloela and Yeppoon an interesting array of guest speakers have been put together for the day and the program for the day is:

9.30am – 10.00am Sign-in and Coffee (Gladstone Shed open at 9am for tours)
