 The shed re opened in July after 14 weeks closed due the corona virus outbreak, since re opening we have been restricted to 20 members onsite at any one time, in that time we have installed a dust extractor, dust room and ducting to all of the wood working machines.

On the 30th of January we made 100 Possum boxes for WIRES with the help of Bunnings, whom sent about 20 team leaders to help with the assembly, a fun day was had by all, since then Central Coast sheds have started or pledged to build over 800 Possum boxes for WIRES & ARC.




































In January this year we held a raffle at Bunnings West Gosford, all prizes were donated by Men's Shed members, the raffle and donations received totalled $3,600 this money was donated to Narara Rural Fire service for their ongoing work of keeping us safe, and in light of the bush fires which were burning across the country at the time, these were some of the raffle prizes.


First of all, sorry for no blogs for a while, it has been over looked by all on the committee.

Just before Christmas 2019 we donated 18 pushbikes and five boxes of tools to the Casino area, this went to people in the Drake and Rappville area's, and was an idea from Ray Crawley Co-Ordinator zone 8a Central Coast Region, he had multiple sheds on board with his idea, it turned out two vehicles and a trailer were needed to take the gear along, they had a BBQ at each site and the bikes, toys and equipment were handed out to all present.

Thank You

Just a note to thank eveyone for your your support over the past 9 years.

I know that we have helped many Men overcome their isolation and depression and have been and will continue to be of assistance to the Community.

It has been my pleasure to have been involved in the setting up of the Gosford Community Mens Shed and seeing the completion of the new Building.

I wish you all the best for the future.

Regards
John Welland.
