Men's Shed to operate at two sites while shed is built
The Umina Beach Men's Shed will continue to operate from its Birdwood Ave facility while the new shed in Osborne Ave is being built.
The Shed will operate at Birdwood Ave on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings; and at Osborne Ave on Mondays and Fridays.
"We are delighted to report that, at long last, the project is on the move," said secretary Mr Vic Brown.
"The concrete has arrived and is currently curing.
"At last we have some evidence on site that the project is truly underway.
"Hopefully in the next few days, the site drainage will be completed and the delivery of the actual shed materials will commence and assembly on site will get underway.
"Once the Shed Shell structure is completed, our Shed members have a variety of real challenges ahead.
"We will need volunteer tilers for the bathroom and kitchen areas, carpentry handymen for the walls, lads to assist in the installation of the insulation, as well as painters, welders and metal workers for the hand rails and gates on the walk ways.'
Mr Brown said gardeners would also be needed for landscaping and hedge plantings.
He said he was hopeful many of Shed members and supporters and local residents would sign up to help.
