A special day at St Teresa's School for some of the blokes from the Mens Shed, when they got to see the new entrants class demonstrate their new activity equipment which had been made by the blokes thanks to funding support from the Parish and Rotary.

A Blokes day out, thanks to Tranzit Coachlines for the bus, this was a great chance to exchange some thoughts and ideas with the Blokes at the NaeNae Menz Shed, have a BBQ lunch with them, then of to Bunnings to buy some tools.

"Shedding really is a great time in life"
