I was pleased to visit my friends at the St George Men's Shed in January.
The Australian Men's Shed Association supports over 1,000 men's sheds, including the St George Men's Shed, of which I am a patron.
The shed currently operates out of Carrs Park and services all of the St George area.
The Men's Shed undertakes a wide variety of activities, including carpentry, furniture making, photography, leather work and basic computer skills.
More importantly, it provides men an opportunity to bond and develop their skills.
It was great to visit the shed, which moved from Penshurst in 2016. It is always fantastic to see these men come from all walks of life to develop new friendships and work on beneficial projects, which can help boost overall wellbeing.
I acknowledge shed president Bernie Dolan for his continued leadership of the shed.
I always enjoy visiting the shed and catching up with members. I look forward to continuing to support the shed in 2020.
