Men’s Shed Overview

The Wodonga Men’s Shed is a place for men to come together, to socialise and to share or develop their skills and relate their experiences. A place of camaraderie, of teamwork and for celebrating community spirit. It’s a place to build on the health and well-being of men.

The Men’s Shed is more than just a “shed”, we meet new friends, share experiences (mostly with a laugh) and we always leave feeling better than when we arrived.

There is an open invitation to all men to come and share in our friendship and camaraderie.

Who’s the Men’s Shed for?

The shed is for blokes of any age, though we realize that men’s sheds traditionally attract many older men, particularly those in or close to their retirement.

We’re keen to involve men who have particular skills and who’d gladly help teach others. We’re equally keen to have blokes involved who want to learn from others, or maybe just want to come along for a cuppa and a chat.

Whether you’re a resident of the border region or a casual visitor to the area, the Wodonga Men’s Shed welcomes you with open arms.

BBQ @ Coles

Gary, Dick and Scott doing a fine job on the BBQ at Coles Wodonga on Saturday 24th November .

A very busy day with lots of talk about the OH&S issues of the onions on top of the snags.

It is a political correctness world where if the sausage sandwich is not made correctly you could get into a lot of trouble.

Meat Raffle Winner

This weeks meat raffle winner was Alan Dunn.

Raised some more funds for the shed. 

Thank you to all that purchased a ticket in this raffle but there can be only one winner. 

Possum Boxes in the Forest

Last Friday several of our shed members (the elite possum box construction team) accompanied  Shane from Parklands Albury Wodonga to check out some the boxes installed in a greenbelt adjacent to the housing estate at Baranduda.

Shane demonstrated how the boxes were monitored and checking  to ensure the least disturbance to any possums occupying the box with a pole mounted camera placed in the entrance hole.

This was then followed up with a quick look in the by opening the lid to get an accurate count of possums and babies in each occupied box.

We were surprised to find out that not all boxes were successful in housing possums as some were taken over by bees to make a hive and there is a reluctance to evict them as there part of the natural eco system.

As an aside Shane also told us the  possum bridges that are situated at various locations along the Hume freeway are getting over thirty crossings per night.
