Have you heard of a “Men’s Shed” before? Well Mudgee now has one, and Merv Hughes was in Mudgee last week to open it – the largest of it’s kind in Australia.
The Mudgee Men’s Shed
is a community group designed for men who just need to hang out with other men, or who need to talk about things with guys who have had similar experiences to themselves. The health and wellbeing of men such as single dads, men with illnesses, and blokes who just need to connect with other blokes in the community, is very important in Australia. With more than 400 Men’s Sheds in the country now, Mudgee is proud to have the largest purpose built shed which caters for all kinds of projects, activities and education programs.
Although the Shed has been operating since July, Merv Hughes officially opened the opened the Shed last Thursday evening, hopefully encouraging more men of Mudgee to seek interaction and independence through the Mudgee Men’s Shed
There’s definitely a huge need for community support on projects such as the Men’s Shed, so well done to the people of Mudgee who chipped in or are now utilising the services offered by the organisation.
