Clarkson Community High School has generously opened up its facilities to this fantastic community group. This is an excellent outcome for the Men's Shed Association and showcases our local community spirit.

The new space is massive and the facilities are better than any the Shed could've hoped for and I thank the principal and staff at Clarkson Community High School for helping to make this a reality.

Clarkson Community High School will benefit from the hands-on experience of Shed members and the Shed will be able to provide items like bench tops, desks and ornaments for the school.

Local projects such as this are the lifeblood of any community and I hope that local people young and old take up the opportunity to make new friends and perhaps discover a new passion, or rekindle an old one.

To become a member of the Quinn's Men's Shed, you will need a valid Working With Children Check. Application forms can be found at most Australia Post outlets or you can request one from the Working With Children Screening Unit. There are also some of these application forms available in my office. It costs $11 to apply.

The next step is becoming a member of the Men's Shed. You can get a membership form for the Shed in a couple of ways.
