WELCOME
 WELCOME TO ELTHAM MEN'S SHED 

Established in 2014, Eltham Men’s Shed is a community-based, not for profit, volunteer organisation that provides a safe and friendly environment where men can meet other men, develop new friendships and connect with their community. Our purpose is to support the health and well-being of our members.

The Shed offers a variety of social and practical activities throughout the week including Wood and Metal Workshops, Bicycle Restoration, Gardening, Technology and Photography. Members are able to work on projects at their own pace in their own time and in the company of other men.

Our weekly social gathering updates members on current activities, invites guest speakers and provides an opportunity to enjoy a cuppa and chat. A variety of other social activities are available including group travel, 4WD outings and dinners.

PRESIDENTS UPDATE
 ELTHAM MEN'S SHED REPORT FOR APRIL 2024 
 Saturday, 11 May 2024

A busy April is now behind us.

A highlight was the Eltham Men’s Shed (EMS) Community Award presented to us at the Viewbank College of Performing Arts. Our award was presented by Kate Thwaites MP.

It was another moment when EMS was recognised for our work in and with the community and particularly giving older men a purpose through camaradarie and involvment in contributing to the community.

Anzac Day had members attend the Eltham Main Street Dawn Service which was well organised by the Montmorency Eltham RSL together with Eltham Rotary.  Bill Cooper and I represented EMS and laid a wreath during the service.

Other members were instrumental in the delivery, set up and packing up of Marquees, chairs and a lecturn for the Friends of Kanagroo Ground War Memorial Service.

Meanwhile, at the Montmorency/Eltham RSL, EMS delivered, set up and packed up the EMS marquee.

Another achievement this month has been the addition of a monitor/TV screen in the small meeting room. Mounted on the wall it already has had much use whilst leaving the large board table clear for meeting documents etc. Martyn Goodwin and David Baker were instrumental in supply and fitting of this unit. A big thank you to them both for this outcome! 

Monday the 29th we had representatives, Peter and Sunshine from L2P inform us of their services in training people of all ages how to drive. Also they were promoting their need for more volunteers to help their organisation.

Neil McCoy gave an informative and clear quarterly update on EMS finances showing that we remain in a solid and viable economic position.

Our Tech Group continued PC Training for members, partners and families during April passing on their knowledge of internet banking, MyGov, staying safe on the internet, internet browsing, etc. Top work gents.

The Eltham Football Club "Footy Gate" continued, well organised by Ray Carroll assisted by Terry Oakley.

EMS was tested on Wednesday 17th of April with no electricity to our facility but our enthusiastic activity groups  found ways to continue or change the day of their operation.

The Dine-out dinner for April (dinner every second Tuesday evening of the month) was enjoyed by the many members and partners who attended the Lime and Chilli restaurant in Greensborough. Top work to John Tenkaten for arranging this night.

Sundowners, our end of month BBQ, as always was well attended with many a true story told!

Lou’s lunch continues to be popular and very enjoyable. The fun wine raffles are a feature of the day which also raises some money. Thanks to Kevin Chambers who does a fantastic job sourcing and selecting the wines each month. Thanks for your generosity Kevin! And of course thans to Roula and her helpers who work culinary magic in our small kitchen which we all really appreciate!

To all EMS members and families, stay safe and well.

Cheers

Leon
