Boost for men's shed project

Efforts to establish a Men's Shed at Umina have been boosted with a $1750 grant from the Central Coast branch of the NSW Law Society.

Regional Law Society president Mr John Arms said the $1750 grant would be provided through a combination of both the NSW Law Society's Regional Grants program and Central Coast Law Society funds.

"We see this as an opportunity to support a worthwhile community project and also encourage other organisations to provide financial assistance to get the Men's Shed up and running," he said.

"The benefits of having a Men's Shed in a local community are tangible and well recognised and we're pleased we can provide some assistance towards this great initiative," he said.

The grant will be used to build a disabled access path and disabled toilet facilities.

Mr Arms will present the cheque to Mr Darrell Pannowitz on February13.

The Men's Shed movement has grown rapidly around Australia with more than 500 established in the past five years.

The Umina Men's Shed is the 14th shed to be set up on the Central Coast.

It has quickly gained the reputation of "the friendly shed".

The first project for the Your Community Men's Shed at Umina will be the establishment of a community garden.
