Shedders making a difference

Construction of Broadfords new Mens Shed is well under way, and Member for Northern Victoria Jaclyn Symes visited the site last week to inspect the construction work on the $80 000 project. Mens Sheds are safe and productive spaces for men to work on common projects, form friendships and give back to their community, with about 15 000 people attending a shed in Victoria each day. Ms Symes said the construction at the Broadford Living and learning Centre would support the Broadford Mens Shed to grow even bigger. The new Broadford Mens Shed will be a fantastic facility, built by the local community for the local community, she said. The Mens Shed members have done outstanding work for their community and are a great example of how shedders make a difference to peoples lives. After 11 years at their old facility, this new facility will allow for more Broadford men to join the Mens Shed, learn new skills and improve their health and wellbeing. Ms Symes also encouraged those wanting to join a Mens Shed to phone Broadford Mens Shed on 5784 043
