On 17 June, the new Waratah Men’s Shed was officially opened.
The Shed has been granted a lease of the Elma Fagan Community Sports Complex from the Waratah/Wynyard Council. This huge facility has a basketball court and two squash courts together with a large recreation room and kitchen.
One of the squash courts and an adjoining equipment storage area will be converted for equipment.
These has been renewed interest in the use of the facility that has remained dormant for many years. The shed will manage the entire complex and should be able to generate an income from renting out part of the complex.
The opening was a great function with members from Central Coast, Devonport and Longford attending.
Bob Thomas, President TMSA welcomed the new shed to the TMSA and noted that they became Shed member number 55 of the TMSA.
