Kandos Rylstone Men’s Shed members have been busy with a number of projects aimed at helping the local community. One recent project which has been a challenge is repairing seats for the Henbury golf course.
The iconic bench seats made of concrete and wood were destined for oblivion following years of slow decay until the men from the shed stepped in. Using ingenuity, plus patch-up concrete, new timber and paint, the seats now look brand new and are ready for another 50 years of service. Members have also painted 80 tee markers, 40 in red and 40 in blue, besides attending to requests from people who call in with things that need fixing.
New members welcome. The shed is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9am to midday. Other activities include carpentry with a fabulous selection of machine and hand tools, electric welding, computer (including emails, google and facebook), gardening and of course socialising with a coffee break at around 10.30am.
