Tallygaroopna Men's Shed

July 24, 2018

Members statement

Visiting men's sheds in my electorate is always a great pleasure.

Attending the opening of the Tallygaroopna Men's Shed last Thursday was a great opportunity to meet with local members and inspect the work that they undertake — from fire pits made of old gas bottles and garden beds made from truck tyre hubs to toys for the local kindergarten.

For a long time we have understood that for many men the transition from employment to retirement can be dislocating and isolating, so to see the camaraderie and good humour and the hard work that is undertaken in these sheds is inspirational.
