The Men's Shed was actively promoted at the Going Off At The Swamp festival at Koala Park in front of Lake Munmorah Power Station.

The San Remo Community Men's Shed set up in a green and white stall with the "Mens Shed" sign displayed to attract the eye of passers by. The stall was also decorated with hand made toys mounted on bright stars to attract attention, a collection of spanners and various hand tools, hand turned rolling pins and the Shed gavel. The gavel proved popular among aspiring young Judge Judy fans.

The stall was manned all day by Keith, Alan & Kim who were kept busy fielding questions about the Shed. How to join the shed, what we do in the shed and what access hours are available were among the many questions during the day.

Mayor Bob Graham dropped by the stall as did councillors Doug Vincent and Lisa Matthews through the day. Glimpses were also seen Mother Goat Jillian flashing past on her electric scooter.

It was a great day to be out amongst a community event promoting the shed and meeting with people interested in the Men's Shed.
