Well done everyone who attended the car boot sale at the ‘Men’s Shed’ on Saturday, thanks to the guys on the brekky BBQ.
The Men’s Shed has three current projects, wooden horses for Maclean Lion’s Club Merry-Go-Round, timber tree seats for Yamba Museum and small boxes for sunglasses. They’ve had several new members join, and invite retired men out there to join them, whether you want to join in helping on community projects, learn a new skill, make use of the huge range of equipment for your own jobs or just a place for a chin wag and cuppa you’ll be most welcome.
