Building And Strengthening Communities Through Men’s Sheds

Executive report from the above newsletter:

The Men’s Shed Movement is growing steadily with new sheds opening almost fortnightly.
The Mount Eliza and Badger Creek sheds officially opened this month with several more planned for May. These sheds are well organised and important additions to their communities.
The Commissioner for Seniors, Gerard Mansour submitted his report on Isolation and Loneliness amongst Older Victorians to Minister Martin Foley. Minister Foley has taken the recommendations and started addressing them within the community and government.
Planning is well underway for the VMSA State-wide gathering of sheds in Cobram on the Murray. The gathering is on the 24th of June and will include many NSW sheds from across the border. The VMSA is always committed to bringing gatherings to regional Victoria. Please contact me with your attendance to get information on accommodation etc.
The Chequered Flag Day at Sandown Racecourse is on 15th of May and will be a fantastic opportunity for a family friendly day out. The VMSA and AMSA will have a stall at the day with Health checks and information on sheds around the State.
The VMSA has been excited to source many pieces of equipment and materials for sheds. Special thanks to Robert Bosch (Australia) and the Joe White Foundation for their generous support for Victorian sheds.
The VMSA has secured discount tickets for Melbourne Storm tickets for their June 4th game versus the Panthers. Contact me quickly to reserve your tickets.
The VMSA hopes to find funding for more Defibrillators and would like expressions of interest from sheds who are interested in receiving a Defibrillator for the shed.
