Due to the coronavirus and the concern for the health and safety of our community, the City has closed the Cockburn Community Men’s Shed until further notice
The Cockburn Community Men’s Shed is open to all men over 18 years of age but is designed primarily for those men who have retired or are no longer employed and who would otherwise be socially isolated, bored or lonely.
The shed is a true community building, hosting events throughout the year, which in 2019 included a street library making event, a Christmas Tree making event, a men’s health expo and several smaller but equally interesting happenings. We hope to continue these events in the future.
We also assist members of the public to repair items that are brought to us, wherever this is possible and practical. We are involved in the community via the local Rotary and Lions Clubs, local primary schools and other community-based organisations. We have just over 90 members, all who enjoy the camaraderie of other ‘blokes’ in a shed workshop atmosphere.
Our main focus is woodworking, but we have a small metal shop and there are plans to create space on our mezzanine floor for arts/crafts.
If you would like to join or just come down and see us, note the contact details and operating hours below.
