Cards and games - Make up the numbers and play cards, draughts or solitaire, whatever you like, as long as no money changes hands.

Turn on the computer or the plasma screen, watch the breakfast show, use Youtube to check out things of interest, or see what Mens Sheds around the world are getting up too.

Pizza to taste, it doesn’t need much of an excuse for Don to fire up the Pizza oven, you bring the toppings and it will be a great lunch time treat.

A Day out – periodically, thanks to support from Tranzit Coachlines the blokes take a bus trip to visit another Mens Shed in the lower North Island to chew the fat, share a laugh and enjoy male company
