Officially opened on the 4th of March 2016 the Wingate Men’s Shed provides a space for Men in the local area to engage with services and learn new skills. The project was successful thanks to hard work and collaboration between DHHS and Justin Madden MP. With further support from the local, state and federal government we were able to outfit the shed with air conditioners, outdoor deck, stainless steel portable benches and tables and chairs. A big thank you to Bunnings who laid new turf and donated the gardening equipment and lawnmower. The men’s program has grown from strength to strength each year and Wingate Men are extremely grateful for their own space. It now means the men’s program can be varied on different days and can include guest speakers and health promotion days.
