Speaker, I rise today to acknowledge the continued hard work of Bayside Men’s Shed and their commitment to building lifelong friendships and promoting safe work practices.
Last year I had the honour of recognising the organisation with a Community Award as part of the 10th Anniversary of the St George Community Awards.
These awards acknowledge some of the many hard working individuals and groups who go above and beyond each and every day to help out their community.
Fred Poole and the entire team do an outstanding job and they provide a number of services including men’s health support, tutoring services and barbecue fundraisers.
They have also built a number of excellent products for the local area including street libraries and bench seating for schools and a bee haven for community gardeners.
This is a fantastic community organisation and their support for members and the local community is simply phenomenal.
I wish your entire organisation all the best for the year ahead.
