The Shed extension is now underway. Shed members laid the slab for the new training room on Wednesday and the builder starts construction next Monday. The job brought out skills in members that had previously been hidden. Philip set up the formwork and did most of the concreting with help from Andrew, Peter and Roger. Bob and Terry barrowed the mix from the truck to the site.


Shed members were saddened to hear of the death of Shed stalwartand oldest member, Ernie Brooker, last Wednesday. Ernie had been in Gosford Hospital for some time. He was the Shed expert in scraping, sanding and painting of items salvaged by other members.

He had his 90th birthday last year and until this latest bout of illness he looked after himself and in spite of requests from his family not to drive he drove himself to the Shed each day.

Funeral details have not been finalised at time of going to press.
