About our shed

About Us

The Mapleton Men’s Shed is a community organisation focused on enhancing the physical and mental well-being of its members through the provision of a suitable site with the necessary facilities and tools which enable members to socialise and engage in meaningful and productive activities. These activities, inevitably, create and reinforce a supportive network of social relationships among participating Men’s Shedders. This ethos is inspired by the Australian Men’s Shed Association of which the Mapleton Shed is a member.

Shed Activities

Currently, shed members are involved with a number of activities.

The Drop-in Centre in the old Barracks room is open for members and other blokes from 9.00 a.m. – 12.00 noon Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Please, drop in and have a cuppa and a chat.

The Shed’s workshop is open regularly from 8.30 a.m. – 1.30 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays. It is, however, often open at other times. So, if you feel like tinkering, a quick phone call could easily provide access.
On the third Tuesday of each month, we have a Luncheon for members and their guests. Our in-house chef prepares both traditional and contemporary cuisine. Each month a different guest speaker presents important information on life issues and bookings are essential.

Shed members also regularly volunteer to help around the shed, assist other local community organisations and, further afield, work with Blaze Aid to lend a hand to more isolated rural communities.
Please check with David, the Acting Secretary for any information about our activities.

Positive impacts


"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.


“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.
