Newcastle Men’s Shed Members and Friends
The Newcastle Men’s Shed at the BHP Admin site is temporarily out of action to facilitate the HDC remediation of the BHP Administration Precinct. It is anticipated that this work will take between 6 and 8 months and in the meantime the committee is working hard to find another place. In the short term we will continue to meet at the St John’s Ambulance hall at 177 Tudor St. Hamilton each Tuesday around 10 am for a cuppa and a chat and to continue with our community involvement.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
