On Thursday, 3rd July 2014, Premier Will Hodgman, paid us a visit.
He confirmed a donation of $2500 towards the cost of the dust extraction unit has been paid into our account.
He was given a ”tour” round The Shed, and was impressed with the setup.
In his speech he acknowledged our community involvement, and the important role Men’s Sheds play within Tasmania as a whole.
For this reason, it was announced in the Mercury on Friday, 4th July that his government will be providing funds of $550,000 to enable Sheds in the state to continue their community development and participation.
On behalf of The Shed committee and members in-coming Chairman, Kevin Clayton, , thanked the Premier for the donation, and his government’s generous funding to the Tasmanian Men’s Sheds Association.
