Goat Sheds

Men's Shed made a strong presence at G.O.A.T.S Music Festival at Integral Energy Koala Park San Remo.

The Mobile Men’s Shed was deployed adjacent to the San Remo Men’s Shed Stall. An excellent display of carpentry items and art objects decorated the stands along with brochures for the Shed and information on men’s health.

During the day 35 tissue box projects were assembled by kids from the age of three to senior years, boys and girls, men and women. Some of the kits were even purchased for assembly at home.

With no grant funding available to cover community engagement activity for this event each kit was charged at $2.00 each. Construction activity was popular throughout the day till about 2pm when most of the crowd moved to the entertainment stages.

Many thanks to George C for towing the trailer from Tuggerah to San Remo and then enthusiastically manning the San Remo stall throughout the day. George W and Glenn Spain did an excellent joy dealing with enquiries about the shed, items for sale and the role of sheds in men's health.

GOATS Family Festival

The Mens Shed's attended the G.O.A.T.S. Family Festival in 2009 and 2010 to promote men's sheds with a strong turn up or over 60 enquiries at the Mobile Mens Shed last year.

The San Remo Neighbourhood Centre team does an excellent job of making this a day for all the community to enjoy.

The Mobile Men's Shed will return this year and bring the Community Engagement Project (tissue boxes) for families to share a construction project together. The San Remo Community Men's Shed are attending this year to promote their shed and sell items made in the shed.

Come along and join the fun at Koala Park!!
Great day out for all the family!!
