Shed Activities

We meet each Tuesday at 8.30 a.m. onward in the Howard Blyth workshop situated in the Life Style building of the Cunderdin Museum,

100A Forrest Street Cunderdin. We don't do a lot, chat is the favorite of us all. We have a breakfast meeting each month to keep the Minutes up to date.

We have been busy with projects for the Community. The Shelters for the Cemetery was a great effort in 2012 by our members in constructing six shelters and erecting them on site. This project was instigated by Community member Faye Harris, and designed and managed by her husband, member John Harris. The Shire of Cunderdin sponsored the project with materials and site leveling. We have also constructed tables for the local Co-op Arcade. We will be refurbishing seat forms for the project as well.

One of our members, Peter Godfrey,  a wood router extraordinaire who has  completed redoing  one teacher school site signs at Waeel. One placed at the original site (a Historical Society project) and the other where the school was shifted to on the hill. This one was set up by Aubrey John Morrell who went to the second site. We regret to report that Peter passed away Saturday 31st. October 2015 as a result of a stroke.

We as a group, about 8 to a dozen, take bus trips to various venues to the enjoyment of all. The most recent one was to the farm of Andrew Repton to see the casting of engine parts and so on. Andrew is known world wide for his skill in this field. An eye opener for the boys who made the trip. Member Allan Rogers(deceased 2.07.2017)organized it all with Andrew. Our entertainment officer Bernie has set up trips in the past that have been most rewarding for the boys. We have visited with other Sheds that are not far away, and we are giving support to our Sister Shed in Meckering, which is part of our Shire. We are looking forward to much interaction with them.

Positive impacts

Camaraderie

"I've found a great group of mates"

Mateship is an important pillar of every Men’s Shed – first and foremost the shed is a place for men to knock about with a group of like-minded mates.

Community

“I give back to the community”

Men’s Sheds are vital community investments delivering programmes and activities that foster community spirit and contribute to building a more inclusive Australia.

Health & Wellbeing

“My health and wellbeing is better because I'm a Shedder”

Many shedders experience improved mental health outcomes. Men (and women) involved at their local Shed report increased self-esteem through participation and learning new skills; de-stigmatisation of experiencing mental health and de-stigmatisation of prevalent social issues related to mental health.

Watch — More than just a shed

The Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) is the national service provider supporting more than 1,200 Men’s, Women’s and Community Sheds and is recognised as one of Australia’s largest male-based community development organisations.

AMSA was established in 2007 by a collection of Australian independent community-based Men’s Sheds to represent, support and promote the Men’s Shed movement. It was founded on the principle of sharing information between sheds and those communities wishing to establish and operate a Men’s Shed. It acts as a central hub for information exchange.
