Yarramalong Men's Shed

Three chaps attended the San Remo Men’s Shed today to gather ideas and obtain some guidance on the process of establishing a shed.

They are planning build the shed on the site of the Old Yarramalong Public School.

Yarramalong Public School opened in 1870 to serve the growing community in the Yarramalong Valley. The school ceased operation in 2008 due to falling student numbers.

The state government was seeking to sell off the property however local residents sought retain the site as a community centre.

The community when asked what they required to improve the community put the idea of a Men’s Shed at the top to their priorities. The local Neighbourhood Centre is an incorporated association and is auspicing the development of a Men’s Shed in the area.

They have a covered area formerly used as a children’s play area. Adjacent to this the Men's Shed Steering committee are keen to build a small shed and later enclose the covered area.

The three members of the steering committee Graham, Paul and Paul sought the advice of San Remo Shed due to its proximity and strong reputation for contribution to the local community as seen in the Express Advocate and other information sourced on the internet.

The Yarramalong Men's Shed Steering Committee have joined the Central Coast Shed Cluster Inc and are keen to join with the other Men's Sheds on the Central Cenetral Coast to have the advice and guidance as they go through the process of setting up their shed.
