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.

Pens for the Troops

The Albury Wodonga Woodcrafters (AWWINC) sponsored by the Wodonga Men’s Shed have successfully made 62 pens to be sent to our troops overseas. They had a fun day of making these pens and lunch was included.

Nutrition as You Age

Keeping a healthy diet is extremely important as you age – to improve your energy levels, maintain a healthy weight and prevent against chronic health conditions. Men less than 70 years of age require 65 grams of protein per day, whilst those over 70 require up to 80 grams high-protein foods including eggs, meat, poultry, dairy, nuts and legumes. Fibre is important to combat gastrointestinal issues, such as bloating and constipation. Foods high in fibre include wholegrain breads, vegetables and fruits. It is also important you drink plenty of water to assist with digestion as well to maintain your fluid status – you tend to lose more fluid as you age due to your skin becoming thinner.
