Activities

Shed Hours 10am to 3pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Closed on Public Holidays.

Training and group instruction - Cooking group and some training courses run on Fridays. These require pre-arrangement to attend.

Participation – For safety reasons, members stop work and join discussions at morning tea and lunch breaks.

Contribution - When attending, $3.00 is levied to cover the cost of coffee, tea, biscuits and workshop consumables.

Time allocation - We would like to think our Shedders give a third of their time to their own projects, a third to assist in the Shed and a third to community projects.
