From repairing much-loved rocking chairs to creating the popular wooden picnic table sets it has become renowned for, the members of the Stroud Men’s Shed will tackle any job.
The club, which formed in 2010, has around 20 members with an active membership so healthy they meet twice weekly in their shed behind the courthouse in Cowper Street.
Secretary, Eric White said the group was a good mix of local men, some married, some single and with varying health among the group.
All share a desire to pass their skills on to others, learn new things, or just catch up regularly with other men for fellowship.
“New members are always welcome to come along, there’s always something happening,” he said.
The group builds picnic table sets for three major raffles each year and for special orders.
Recently the Federal Member for Lyne, Dr David Gillespie, paid the men a visit to deliver a $4500 cheque to buy a drum sander and a defibrillator.
