Hawea locals are laying the ground work for a community shed of their very own, with a site in their sights and the goals of nuturing “Mateship” amongst men of all life stages and ages, as opposed to the retiree focus of the Wanaka facility.

The current focus is to build up the steering group, and put some plans in place around legalities, insurance and protection, which are all needed in order to secure a proposed venue in the township.

Long time local and project coordinator Errol Carr welcomes all who might be interested to reach out to him and continue to provide momentum to the steering group. To get involved in the Hawea Men’s Shed steering group, contact Errol on ewc.lhnz@gmail.com
