Men’s Shed Avoca

Following a break for a few weeks to allow existing members to attend training courses in governance and to source appropriate insurance cover the Men’s Shed Avoca is back having regular meetings. These take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the old railway station in the golf club car park at Woodenbridge, courtesy of the Golf Club.

Anybody wishing to find out more about us should come down next Tuesday when we gather for a cup of tea and a chat. We are anxious to recruit new members and expand our range of activities. This is also an opportunity for members to bring forward new ideas and projects which might be of interest to the group.

Current plans are for more cookery lessons and to make more “Buddy Benches” for local organisations. We also want to tidy up around the railway station and possibly do some minor renovations on the building if there is sufficient interest amongst the members.

Enquiries about any aspect of the Shed can be made to any member or to our treasurer Pat Cronin (0872328528) or chairman Victor O’ Shaughnessy (0879448821)

If you are looking for a night out with the girls that won’t cost the earth, please drop in to see us. This event is being run to raise funds for an all-weather playing surface at Avoca National School. Your support in helping us to provide a better playing space for our young children would really be appreciated.
