During November 2019 we will be open on Wednesday evenings 7 pm – 10 pm for a trial period.
We currently have 70 members with membership open to men and women over the age of 16 years (but if you are 18 or younger you will need to be accompanied by a guardian at all times). Prospective members will be asked to fill in an application form. When accepted the annual subscription is $50.
A typical workshop session would have some members working on their own projects, others making items for fund-raising or community projects and some working on shed improvements.
The fine Canterbury weather enables some activities to take place outside in the yard but most work is carried out in one of several workshop areas.
We spend almost as much time socialising as we do working. Visitors are welcome to drop in and see us and join us for a cuppa and a chat. We stop for morning smoko at 10:00 am and regularly arrange outings to other sheds and when the suns shines, barbeques for our members and guests.
The Timaru Community Menzshed is proudly supported by the Community Trust of Mid & South Canterbury.
