HOW WE STARTED
On saturday the 14th of September 2019 Graeme Douglas organised a meeting at the Retox bar in
Tokoroa as a show of interest in starting a Menzshed in the area.
Six people turned up to the meeting,plus the Menzshed representitive from Mount Maunganui.
Three people,Graeme Douglas,Dave Kay and Bruce Nelson showed enough interest to spend the
next month setting up some sort of infrastructure.
On Thursday the 10th of October we had our first meeting at the Retox Bar,10 members were signed
up for what is to be known as South Waikato Menzshed.
On Tuesday the 15th of October we opened a bank account with Kiwibank and started to have
weekly meetings in members garages.
Friday the 8th of November South Waikato District Council offered us a 5x5x5 year lease on the
old Seascouts hall at 82 Baird road Tokoroa and the Retox Bar made a donation.
On Monday the 25th of November we finally picked up the keys to our shed so we could get started
tidying it up.
Monday the 25th of November was an exciting day as we become an incorporated society to
become SOUTH WAIKATO MENZSHED INCORPORATED!
On Thursday the 12th of December a grant was placed in our bank account from
South Waikato District Council and on Tuesday the 17th of December Host Lions club made a donation
So we have come a long way in a very short time
WHY DONT YOU COME ALONG FOR THE RIDE!

This will be considered by committee dependant on the size of
