Ist Health Presentation
On the 9th of October we held our first Health Presentation at our new home at 50 Clyde Street Hamilton North.
More than 30 people attended the presentation on stroke awareness, prevention and recovery.
It was a great chance to show off our new Shed, get to meet the members wives partners and friends who attended, and showcase just what we are all about.
Along with our Regular Blood Pressure Testing we are adding to our Shed’s focus on Helping our members with the health issues that effect our every day life, and being able to take it to the wider community is only a plus.
We are now fully operational at 50 Clyde Street Hamilton North, Next to Budget Car Rentals
Open 5 Days a week Mornings to early Afternoon
Easy Parking , All welcome .
Tuesdays is our weekly meeting and a great time to just drop in and check us out, find out what we are all about, and see if we are what you are looking for.
The Newcastle Men's Shed recently moved all its operations into premises at 50 Clyde St Hamilton North. The Shed originally commenced its activities a few years ago at Mayfield in the basement area of the former BHP Admin Building but due to essential remediation site work the shed had to move. We were able to share premises with the Waratah/Mayfield Multicultural Men's Shed for a period until the need for a separate shed became necessary. For a time we were homeless,certain projects were completed with the aid of our "Shed on wheels Ute, " Membership numbers declined , but are now climbing to 40 and growing and the members are currently fitting out the new venue with stored equipment in various locations so we can return to full service operations in the coming months. The AGM for the 2017- 2018 was held on 28th August 2018 at the new venue and a full Annual Presentation/ Financial Report was submitted & approved by members and available. Annual Elections were held resulting in the new Committee for 2018 - 2019 as follows.
