Since the first community shed for men opened its doors in 1993, the Men’s Shed community has grown to encompass more than 2,500 Sheds in 12 countries.

The first community shed for men, ‘The Shed at Goolwa Heritage Club’, opened in Goolwa (South Australia) in February 1993.

To coincide with this 30 year milestone, the Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) and Sheds around the country are celebrating three decades of connection, community and camaraderie this Men’s Shed Week (3 – 9 September 2023).

“The NEWSTEAD MEN’S SHED was established in 2010 and is a key community asset for NEWSTEAD and the local communities,” said Shed President James Grant.

“The members of Newstead Men’s Shed find a place to belong at the shed, as well as participate in various community-building activities such as assisting with projects at local primary schools and kindergartens and contributing to local community events and projects.,” said Shed Secretary , Graeme Lees.

The Newstead Men’s Shed will be hosting an Open Day on 9th September from 11am to 2pm in Newstead to celebrate Men’s Shed Week.
