HOWRAH MEN'S SHED
Howrah Men’s Shed is a voluntary non-profit organisation that aims to provide a facility where members can meet, have fun, engage in practical projects while at the same time ensuring that the Howrah Men’s Shed develops into a valuable community facility supported by a thriving and active membership.
We welcome members irrespective of race, creed, gender, sexual preference or age.
Whether or not you wish to spend time making your favourite project such a toy for a grand-child, or just drop in for a chat and a cup of tea/coffee - that’s fine.
We have the Shed, the tools and equipment you need. Our members have the experience, knowledge and training to get you started once you have been inducted.
We have over sixty members. Some attend once a month, others several times a week. Members have a wide-range of skills from spinning the best yarn to be an expert wood craftsperson.
Howrah Men’s Shed is an incorporated association with a management committee and executive committee that meet not less than monthly. The Annual General Meeting of members is held in August each year.
The Howrah Men’s Shed strives to be sustainable. Funds come from members, fund raising, donations, sponsorship and grants.
The main expenditure is insurance for members and running costs such as power and water.
The location of the Shed is strategic, being adjacent to the Howrah Comunity Centre and schools. The Shed partners with the Southern Support School and Howrah Primary School.
Annual membership is currently $60.
Provision can be made for members with special needs to receive assistance with the cost.
Shed times are from 9.00am to 12.00pm on the following days, excluding public holidays:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
