For any member who hasn't seen the video from the MGMS Men's Health Day, (you're probably in it?") the link is as follows:
Mt Gravatt's Men's Shed Inc. promotes a strong interest in Woodworking, Woodturning, Carpentry, Welding, Sheetmetal (new) and Small Motors (new). Interest groups also exist in the shed for members such as Darts, Guitar, Cooking, Computing, Card Playing, Gardening, Leatherwork, Photography (new sites added), Art and Travel.
The shed is a friendly and relaxed place with plenty of time for a cup of tea and a chat with other members. No matter what your skills, you will be welcome at the Shed. If you are skilled in any of the areas we cater for, then you are encouraged to pass them on to others or you can learn from others as they pass on their skills.
