    Work started on Friday 20th April '18 on the Heritage Shed. Workers included Andrew McInally, Steve Pearce and Kieron O'Connell. They have made an excellent start, despite the presence of a self-effacing but definitely scary brown snake. Andrew provided the photos showing their sterling work.

    If you are unlucky your name should go onto a waiting list and Andrew will probably run further workshops, in between filming, family, getting into the Heritage Shed, starting metal work and blacksmithing - HELP THE MAN!!

    For your information, SBMS renews its insurance coverage at the end of February each year. Since the Shed was established, we have taken insurance through the Australian Men's Shed Association. This year, following a suggestion from the Queensland Men's Shed Association, we decided to look at what alternative insurance packages were available. As a result, the Executive Committee has decided to accept an insurance package arranged specifically for Australian Men's Sheds by an insurance broker, A J Gallagher.

    A comparison of the new package against the previous AMSA package has shown that the Gallagher offer would provide more comprehensive coverage approximately 30% cheaper than the AMSA package.

    Details of the new insurance package are available for your perusal from the Member Documents page of the Member Portal.
