Ride-on restoration a labour of love
The Newcastle Men’s Shed is back in 2016
The Newcastle Men’s Shed is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 9 00am to 2 00pm.
Newcastle Men’s Shed welcomes new members. If you are interested in woodworking or metal work, or in doing community support work, based out of our new workshop, we would love to hear from you. Alternatively, if you just want to come along, have a chat and a cuppa, then that is also fine with us. We are there for your benefit!

Raymond Terrace Men’s Shed visits Newcastle Men’s Shed
Raymond Terrace Men’s Shed visited our shed on 31/03/2016, this visit hightlighted the men’s shed movement should be all about, visiting and sharing of information and socialising with others.
Grahame from RTMS arranged a bus trip of about 25 members to visit both Newcastle and Belmont Men’s Shed and discuss subjects such as men’s shed business etc. The visitors were welcomed and shown around the Newcastle Men’s Shed (part of the lower ground floor of old BHP Administration Building). Many stories were heard of times spent working or attending the BHP facility during their working life
After a short visit and collecting a goodies’ bag from Newcastle Men’s Shed they returned to the bus and continued on their trip to Belmont Men’s Shed. After they left Belmont Men’s Shed, they took the “bushy’s short cut” via Caves Beach and Green Point to Valentine Bowling Club for a bistro lunch then skirted the lake travelling home.
Thank you to young Ted’s for the photos, above recording the visit. Ted turns 91 in a couple of weeks and is very active in the Raymond Terrace Men’s Shed.
An invitation for a return visit to the Raymond Terrace Men’s Shed, was extended to all our members.
