Regular Events

The Inverell CommunIty Men’s Shed

The Men’s Shed: 9AM at The Men’s Shed, the rear of the Inverell Showgrounds in the north east corner. The Inverell Community Men’s Shed is a great place for men who have or may be nearing retirement. The whole focus is on maintaining the well-being of men while allowing them to participate in activities relating to working on projects for the citizens of Inverell and surrounding district. Even if you don’t feel you have the skills required, you may be pleasantly surprised at what you can actually do, so why not come down and have a look. Not only the working side but the social aspect of sitting down for a cuppa and a chat with others is another way that the health of men can be improved dramatically. The Men’s Shed is open from 9AM until noon every Monday, Wednesday and Friday (public holidays excepted).
