    Outdoor seating was constructed for, and presented to Stones Corner, C & K  Kindergarten. Our  members used modwood (recycled boards) and non-toxic treated pine to produce four benches for the Kindy. The teachers were very happy with this sturdy product. Our next project for the Kindy is a Street Library in the New Year. Our payment for this work was more modwood, which is to be used for an outdoor table at the shed.

    The AGM held on 15th November was a formal recognition of members and their contributions to our shed and the community during 2022, so much was achieved during the year. A new Executive Committee was elected to lead in the management of our Shed.

    I suspect that this apology will only be read by myself so here goes!

    I had a look at the Shed website a few days ago and realized (do you like the American spelling?) that there had been nothing done with it from the end of 2021.

    So, I guess that I need to take more seriously the training of people to do things like making sure that the Events area is kept up to date and that some sort of news appears here.

    Having said that what is the news?

    COVID We discussed this briefly at our initial Management Committee meeting for 2022 and decided that Merv and I would look at what we had decided at the beginning of the crisis and whether it was still "fit for purpose". Phil Sharp managed to find the original "Covid-Safe" plan - thanks! - and Merv and I will suggest to the next meeting that it really needs little change. The important things are "Do Not come to the Shed if you are sick or are a recent close contact" , "Leave your time of arrival and departure" and "Wear a Mask unless you are eating or drinking". Otherwise anyone is able to visit. 

    Woodwork Shed. The grant to allow completion of the work on the woodwork area is largely spent and the structure is nearly completed. The last contracted work will give us a dust extraction system. Meanwhile Graham and Ted and others have carried forward the internal sheeting and storage installation. It is looking good.

    Music The Ukulele and other musical activities continue with due attention to masks and ventilation. All the members who take part are vaccinated and seem to benefit from the socialisation.

    Management Committee The Committee was formed without a Secretary at the AGM. This is a vital role for the shed and is particularly discussed in the shed Constitution. Steve Chakalakis has bravely agreed to undertake the role and  i have offered to act as Assistant Secretary. Steve is still also organising Sausage Sizzles, so he will be busy! Help him if you can.

    Sausage Sizzles are back again, but they are unfamiliar. At Bunnings, Rocklea BUT week-ends only. At the entrance to the gardening section, with new arrangements for a whole lot of things - electronic payment, COVIDSafe distancing, you apply the sauce! 

    The onions still go on first. Contact Steve Chakalakis (0451 302 305) for information or put your name on the whiteboard at the shed.

    AGM - will be on the Tuesday 3rd November at 10 AM. If there are no changes to COVID restrictions we should be able to have 30 members (only) attend in person, so please provide a proxy if you are not going to attend.

    The main items of business will be

    to elect the Shed Management Committee for the next year, so we need nominations (there is a "spill" each year)  AND

    Receive the audited accounts. If there is anything else you want to have raised please contact me 

    Appropriate forms will be emailed and put on the notice board at the shed.

    I have looked at the website and seen that the last thing I wrote was about the end of last year. COVID-19 has thrown a massive spanner in a lot of works.

    So we have been open, in a somewhat tentative and approximately COVID safe sort of way since mid-June. We have had two Management Committee meetings face-to-face rather than over Zoom. Ukuleles are being played using one of the big screen TVs to provide song sheets and with as much through ventilation as possible. The gardens are being watered and looked after, the woodwork shed has been assessed by QBuild and George's plans for sheeting and cleating and work bench installation have been looked at with favour, plans for a suitable site for Warren Hipworth's memorial plaque are afoot, a PayPal sytem to allow you to make your $2 contribution without needing nasty coins to be touched is struggling into existence.

    So things are happening! For how long?

    Use zip ties to hold your fingers crossed for Victoria and New South Wales!

    Hope for an outbreak of common sense in the entire Australian population!
