A men's shed in Moama is one step closer after a businessman offered up the use of a shed in the industrial estate.TRENT HORNEMAN July 23, 2014 3:29am
A men’s shed in Moama could be a step closer.
Murray Shire councillor Gen Campbell told a council meeting in Mathoura last week that a Moama businessman approached her offering free use of a shed to help form a men’s shed in Moama.
She said Tony Aquino had offered use of his shed in a Moama industrial estate.
While Cr Campbell wanted councillors’ permission for shire staff to talk with Mr Aquino, other councillors offered their thoughts on starting a men’s shed in Moama.
Cr Ian Moon said he would like to see a men’s shed at Moama’s slipway, where members could help repair ships.
Cr Chris Bilkey said council should include Echuca Men’s Shed in the discussion, as it is looking for a new home in Echuca.
The issue of a Moama men’s shed was brought up at a recent Murray Shire council meeting, where Cr Geoff Mackenzie said a group of Moama residents raised the issue with him.
Cr John Pocklington said there were plans to establish a Murray Shire men’s shed in Mathoura four or five years ago, but it did not get off the ground due to a lack of interest.
He said council did not have a shed to offer a group.
Cr Mackenzie said he would tell the group Murray Shire gave its in-principle support, but it needed to create a plan and find a suitable home.
