Manning Men’s Shed

 

Shed_PhotoThe Manning Mens Shed is associated with the Manning Senior Citizens Centre which initiated it’s construction for opening in 2015.

Several community groups contributed including LotteryWest, the City of South Perth, the Royal Perth Golf Club, the South Perth RSL, IGA Como, Southcare Inc, the Mill Point and South Perth-Burswood Lions Clubs, John McGrath MLA, Antiskid Industries and the Manning Senior Citizens Centre.

Strong community links have been established including a formal partnership with the Rotary Clubs of Como and Mill Point. It has proved beneficial in developing other community links and ongoing support from the Rotary Clubs. Other links are with local schools for which  mentoring programs  are in place along with local businesses.

Current membership of the shed is presently about 100 men. New members are most welcome.

Annual fees are $70 with a $2 charge to cover “Session Fees” for each half day session.

Our philosophy is to

  • Create an environment which encourages men’s health and well being
  • Enable Men’s Fellowship
  • Do things for ourselves, others and the community
  • Help each other
