The Springbrook Men’s Shed has raised the roof and officially opened their new home with the help of a $5,000 Commonwealth grant.
Federal Member for Wright Scott Buchholz attended the opening and congratulated the Springbrook Men’s Shed Association on their dedication to the project.
“After four years the Springbrook Men’s Shed Association has moved into their new facilities,” Mr Buchholz said.
“The Association has made such a strong contribution to the local community – the sense of belonging and togetherness the Club’s 22 members get by providing a space to connect is invaluable.”
Springbrook Men’s Shed Association President Jim Darke said the Men’s Shed would enrich local’s lives.
“We want to bring people together in a place where they can talk about themselves, their problems and share their skills,” Mr Darke said.
“The Men’s Shed is a meeting place for our community and we’re looking for new members.”
Mr Buchholz thanked the Springbrook Men’s Shed Association for their work in the community.
“I’m proud to be part of a government which supports the work of the Men’s Shed in this Springbrook and I am proud to have played a part in helping them get this grant.”
“I thank the Springbrook Men’s Shed for their continuing commitment and service to our community.”
