tissue boxes

Dads Day Out, Wyong will be held at Colongara Bay Park on 20 June 2010. the event will commence at 11am.

The organising committee are keen to have interactive events for dads and kids. There was a donation of hammers from Bunnings for the event so the Mens Sheds have set about finding an activity that uses the hammers and has men and their children to interact.

Tissue boxes prepared in a flat pack for assembly at the event have been made. All 100 of them.

The Entrance Men's Shed took on the task of making 100 tissue boxes for this event. All the sides were cut out today to match the tops that were cut and routed last shed day.

Funds were sourced and made available through The Benevolent Society for the materials.


Jim was had at work today fitting this boat hook onto a large pole.

Jim reckons that this will make it much easier to dock singlehanded.

He was also making good use of the outside
work area and vice.

Good to be able to chat, enjoy the outside fresh air and work at the same time . .!!

traffic control

That's our new


sign for crowd control and additional promotional advertising for The Entrance Men's Shed.

Lester has whipped this one up for us with his signwriting skills and some spare time at home.

It has immediately been put to good use around the shed and environs to guide people in and to the safer parts of the shed.

The Entrance Men's Shed made a strong contribution to the G.O.A.T.festival at the Koala Park Lake Munmorah Power Station.

Shedders will recognise a few items from The Entrance Shed on display on the day.

Thanks again to Bob Ihlein for towing the trailer up in the early morning.

Many visitors came to the Mobile Men's Shed on the day to talk about sheds, enquiring about opening times and what happens at a shed. With over 60 enquiries on the day it was a most successful outing for the Mobile Shed.

Enquiries mainly focussed on the San Remo Community Men's Shed but with festival goers coming from all over the central coast there were enquires about Gosford, The Entrance and as far away as the Peninsula shed.

The Central Coast Shed Cluster Inc provides the trailer for community events. For more information please click here.
