Our shed received a very special and urgent request from a very generous community member. She wanted 20 nesting boxes to give to a friend in the recently fire affected area. This was her gift and way of showing respect for that local community.
Our members grabbed this with glee and joy, started work immediately. They followed the design and cut layouts for a Ring Tail Possum and Micro Bat nesting boxes. We devised the most efficient and minimal wastage cut patterns from sheets of 15mm Marine Plywood ….
This project was delivered in less then a month. Our new shed friends Alicia and Julie were surprised and overwhelmed with the quality and speed ny which our talented team delivered.
Dundas Public School and Carabella day care centre are now the proud owners of Street Libraries built by Parramatta District Men’s Shed.
Our Men’s shed was approached with a request to build Street Libraries for these two organisation …. they both approached our shed separately. We were able to meet their needs through purchase of marine grade plywood. The design came from one of our members who has a street library themselves and so the design we knew would work.
In the case of Carabella Day care Centre the Library was installed by their handyman on Friday and on Monday it was officially launched …. by Tuesday it was “Chocker Block” with donated books …. How excited were they!!!!!
