Mens Shed Gathering

West Winds Men's Shed & Channel Men's Shed have agreed to host the next Southern Sheds Representative Gathering on Friday 30 November.

Their invitation is below:

Welcome Southern Shed presidents/representatives to the Southern Sheds' Quarterly(?) Gathering.

  • To assist with catering and manning the Channel Mens' Shed walk about, RSVP will be much appreciated.
  • The Gathering and luncheon will be held at West Winds Community Centre, 3528 Channel Highway Woodbridge [mud map for parking location below] followed by a visit to Channel Mens' Shed to round out the day.
  • Arrivals with casual chat and coffee set for 9:15AM for a 9:45AM start.
  • While the format of the morning will be, as usual, a friendly with a round table update from Sheds attending.
  • If wished, we can share specific experiences with newly established and establishing Sheds,
  • Channel and Woodbridge would like to gauge the future direction of these meetings and have brainstormed (with TMSA) a couple of topics for consideration as time permits.
    • Is this a just social occasion or a formal/informal business meeting
    • What have Sheds taken away from previous meetings and are considering implementing?
    • Is it appropriate to have an invited Speaker and if so, what are the topics Shed would consider relevant to their efforts?
    • Are formal reports on developments in individual Sheds required or should it remain on an informal round table basis.
    • Do we have another one and if so, who will host?
  • Luncheon is scheduled from 12 until about 1:30PM when all those interested will depart for Channel Mens' Shed at Van Morey Road Margate for a more or less casual walk around and discussion with a couple of that Shed's members and committee. We would envisage wrap up at somewhere between 4:00 and 4:30PM so that attendees can beat peak hour on their way home.

RSVP's should be sent to either:
