Men's Shed officially opened

TODAY'S official opening of the Derwent Valley Men’s Shed was the culmination of more than three years’ hard work by the local community, Lyons Liberal MHA Guy Barnett said. "The Derwent Valley Men’s Shed has worked closely with the Derwent Valley Council and other local community groups since 2012 to establish the Shed as a space where local men can connect, share skills and participate in projects that contribute back to the community," he said.

Mr  Barnett said the Shed has been well supported by the wider Derwent Valley community through donations of equipment and building supplies needed to restore the Shed. "The Derwent Valley Men’s Shed completes woodwork and metalwork projects for the community and seeks mentoring opportunities and ways to support people with disabilities." he said.
