Stafford Community Men’s Shed is a member of the Australian Men's Shed Association.
The Men’s Shed serves Stafford and the surrounding community.
Opening times : Monday and Friday 8:00am – 12:00pm. (Holidays excepted).
The premise of each Men’s Shed is to provide a local informal location where men can spend time engaged in manual crafts such as woodworking, restoration of old furniture and other projects of interest.
Our shed is a place for men to be socially active, form friendships and allows new opportunities for activity and interaction in their lives post-work.
Members range from men who are using tools for the first time to experienced woodworkers looking to maintain and hone their existing skills. The shed enviroment is positive and encouraging no matter what a man's ability. There is a strong focus on learning new skills, encouraging one another and working together.
Just as diverse as Sheds themselves are the number of different activities available to members.
Although activities vary from shed to shed, they may include:
members personal projects
making projects for community needs
learning to use a wide variety of workshop tools from carving to lathe, sawing to sanding
working with other men to complete larger projects
social networks and other activities eg BBQs
making items to raise funds for the shed
The shed provides an enviroment where productivity and being of value to his community can contribute to a man’s feeling of self worth and help to develop a sense of meaning and productivity in the years following retirement, loss or other hardship.
Membership is open to all age groups.
Applications for membership, can be obtained from Committee members. Please contact us for more information.
