Shedder’s Long Lunch – Men’s Shed Week

This Men’s Shed Week we’re celebrating the fundamentals of Men’s Sheds: connection, community and camaraderie. Men’s Sheds play an important role in providing men with a place to connect, a community to belong to and mates that make it all worthwhile.

Thanks to AMSA major partner Fair Dinkum Builds, the Australian Men’s Shed Association and Men’s Sheds of WA have come together to host a Shedder’s Long Lunch for Men’s Shed Week.
