The Port Lincoln Mens Shed was opened in by the Mayor of Port Lincoln, Peter Davis, on Sunday 11th October, 2009.
It has grown rapidly since that day. The Port Lincoln Mens Shed has developed a safe and happy environment where men are welcome to work on community projects, specific Mens Shed projects or a project of their choice in their own time and where the only "must" is to observe safe working practices.... all in a spirit of mateship.
Wheelchair access was recently added to the Mens Shed.
The Port Lincoln Mens Shed has a range of equipment for members to use, including hand tools, a wood lathe, drill press, bandsaw, planer, table saw, as well as welding equipment and a metal lathe. Our supervisors provide training to all users. This enables members to work on a diverse range of projects including: furniture repairs, make models and toys and other items for many diverse groups and individuals.
Regular discussions take place on Mens Health issues with input from local health professionals.
There are a range of guest speakers who have shared their stories with the members.
If a person wishes to just enjoy fellowship, socialise, share experiences, or share a joke over a cuppa, they are just as welcome.
All men welcome, age is no barrier!
