ABOUT US The Whyalla Men’s shed provides an environment where men can join with other men, of all ages and backgrounds, to make things, fix things, learn things, to tinker away at odd jobs or simply share a cup of tea and a laugh. The Whyalla Men’s Shed arose from humble beginnings and is there to serve the needs of it’s growing member-base. The shed became an incorporated entity in April 2013 and regular meetings began in a shed at the back of the Life Without Barriers offices and continued until January 2014. We signed a lease on our permanent premises (for the next 5 years at least) in November 2013 and the members are now meeting at the ‘new’ shed, which is actually an old church in need of lots of TLC.
As of September 14th 2014, the shed was officially opened. However much work is still needing to be done. Eventually we aim to have a functional workshop, kitchen and lounge area, an outdoor garden and recreation area, a games room and computer suite. Planned activities include woodwork, metalwork, welding, lead lighting, gardening, photography, computing, men’s health promotion and various social activities
Q: What do blokes do at the shed? Whatever they like (within reason!), including nothing. Q: Who can join? All men, of all ages and backgrounds. Q: How much does it cost? $15 per quarter or $50 per year. We also ask for a $1 donation to cover tea/coffee etc. Q: Can women join? Yes, but why? The whole idea of a Men’s Shed is to get men out of the house for a few hours and give the wives some space. Wives are welcome to support their men, the shed and its aims.

Q: Is alcohol allowed? No, if you need a drink there are plenty of pubs around town! Q: What if I smoke? Don’t worry, we have fire extinguishers on the premises to put you out. Q: Who makes the decisions? No-one, and everyone, but there is a Management Committee for the tricky things.
