The Nepean Men’s Shed will be having an Open Day on Wednesday
27th September as part of AMSAs Men’s Shed Week. The shed at 18 Simeon Road, Orchard Hills will be open from 9.00a.m. to 1.00pm to welcome visitors to see what goes on in a typical men’s shed and to enjoy a cuppa.
To the surprise of many visitors in the past a men’s shed is not just about woodwork or metal work and visitors to the Nepean Men’s Shed will be able to see other activities such as art, photography, pyrography, gardening, model making and even a recreation / games area.
Men’s Shed Week is also the time when the 7th National Men’s Shed Conference is being held in Surfers Paradise when over 400 delegates from all over Australia will be attending. It is also the Australian Men’s Shed Associations 10th year of operation. The delegates at the conference will be discussing topics such as the management and governance of men’s sheds, men’s health and safe working. A popular part of the national conferences is always the opportunity to visit other men’s sheds in the area. A member of the Nepean Men’s Shed will be attending the conference.
