The Crookwell Men's Shed is opening its doors for guests on Tuesday, December 3.

The open day is for all members of the community, but especially those who have recently moved to the area.

"If you have a new neighbour or friend [who has] never been to the Men's Shed, they're welcome," secretary Don Southwell said.

On display will be items crafted by the shed's men and women, including restored furniture such as a rocking horse, picnic benches, alongside working demonstrations.


Guests can then stay for a free lunch. "Men and women are welcome to mix with others who enjoy working with wood and share a fellowship that assists our community," said Mr Southwell.

Much of the work is restoration work or jobs that are contracted by community groups unable to get it done through town tradespeople.

"The women are being tutored and assisted to do woodwork and the use of tools and work on their own projects," Mr Southwell said.


The shed was a welcome, participating place, he said.

The Men's Shed is at 7 Park Street, Crookwell and the open day runs from 10am and 3pm.

The Men's Shed meet each Monday and Wednesday between 9am and 4pm, and it is 'ladies day' on Tuesday between 9am and noon.
