Grants help Men's Shed get fitted out

THE Childers District Men's Shed Association recently received two grants from the Australian Government National Shed Development Program.

President Rob Dight said every year the Federal Government granted approximately $800,000 to the Australian Men's Shed Association in the form of development grants.

"We applied earlier in the year for three that were available and to our delight we were successful in two of them," he said.

One grant of $6500 will help pay for suitable pathways and ramps for disabled access as well as some internal fit-out works.

The second grant of $1500 is to be used for the purchase of tools and equipment.

"We are over the moon as these grants will help us provide a great venue for the members to experience what a Men's Shed is really all about," Mr Dight said.

"Yes, we've had some hiccups and delays but remain confident we will soon be able to get on with building the Shed."

Mr Dight said the committee and members thanked the Australian Men's Shed Association for its support.
