Tasty start for Men's Shed
The Tom Price Men's Shed had its first barbecue last weekend to raise funds for new play equipment at the arts and cultural centre.
Tom Price Men's Shed president Justin Robinson said the fundraiser was the start of a fantastic partnership with the arts and cultural centre, where they hoped to establish a shed where men can gather and work on community projects.
"The Tom Price Men's Shed is a place for all men who value the role that the men's sheds play in the prevention of social isolation by providing a safe, friendly and welcoming place for men to work on meaningful community projects," he said.
"In doing so, we aim to improve the wellbeing of all men and get them involved in the local community."
Mr Robinson said it was early days for the Tom Price Men's Shed but they were working hard to build a place where men could help each other stay healthy.
"We will have fundraisers throughout the year with the hope of gaining more members in the process," he said.
"We would especially like to thank the Tom Price Emergency Service cadets, who were a great help."
Mr Robinson said the group needed the community's help to design a logo.
He said all ages were invited to enter the competition, the only restriction being each design entry needed to fit in a circle.
A winner will be picked at the end of month and will receive a $60 voucher from Muzzy's Hardware.
