Men’s Shed A Go

Last month I presented a cheque for $150,000 to the Manning Seniors Citizens’s President, Mr Robert Burton  to assist in the construction of a publically accessible Manning Men’s Shed.  The hub’s construction was made possible by a  Lotterywest grant.

Recently we’ve seen a movement driven by older, retired men establishing these hubs and  the Shed will be a place where men can go to do DIY jobs, form friendships and seek social support.  It is pleasing  to see this initiative coming to Manning.
