Mannering Park Community Men’s Shed are pleased to have received a community grant from Wallarah 2.
Mannering Park Men’s Shed membership numbers have grown to more than 60 since its inception in 2012, and with more members, more projects can be undertaken.
“At the moment, we are in the process of completing some planter boxes for Doyalson Community Garden and Lake Munmorah Public School, and we have many other projects on the go”, said Men’s Shed Project Manager, Joe Lavin.
“Our aim at the shed is to foster friendship, health and wellbeing of others and to share, disseminate and preserve skills.
“We assist with community based functions at schools, our local church and sailing club, and also work with other local community groups like the CWA and Tidy Towns.
“This funding provided by Wallarah 2 will enable the purchase of a new wood turning lathe for the wood working section to provide quality wood turning within the shed for community projects, and we would like to thank Wallarah 2 for their continued support,” Lavin said.
Environment and Community Manager for Wallarah 2 Coal Project, Peter Smith, said supporting men’s health and wellbeing in the community is very important.
“Wallarah 2 is pleased to assist Manno Men’s shed with the purchase of this new equipment,” Smith said.
