Busy shed

Ocean Grove Men''s Shed will hold Google Earth and photo-book workshops.

As part of Be Connected week Ocean Grove & District Men’s Shed will be conducting two programs for people over the age of 55.

The first, on Wednesday 16 October, will explore the use of Google Earth.

The second, on Wednesday 23 October, is about making photo-books.

Participants are encouraged to bring along photos on a USB stick that can be converted into a book and you may get the opportunity to start a book for yourself.

All men and women over the age of 55 are welcome. Afternoon tea will be provided.

Members at the shed have been busy preparing for Christmas with market stalls to be at Ocean Grove Rotary market on Sunday 3 November and Sunday 1 December.

Members will also be at Wallington’s WRG Christmas market and hopefully in the main street for the trader’s Christmas market day.

Look out for rocking horses, helicopters, native animal and bird nesting boxes, planter boxes, fence peepers and vertical gardens. If you would like to order something to be made for Christmas then you need to visit the shed and order soon.

New members are always welcome. Drop into the shed around 10am any week day, except

Thursday, to check them out.

Ocean Grove Men’s Shed is looking at opening on Thursdays in the new year to cater for its growing membership. That means the shed will be open Monday to Friday with Wednesday afternoons set aside for meetings.

Members have been working on small repairs for members of the community and this has been keeping the men busy.

Our Lady Star of the Sea Primary School have recently received a boat that was fitted out for their playground along with two mud kitchens and 90 cut out planter boxes.
