                                                                           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

       PROJECT ASSISTANCE

we welcome enquiries for assistance with community projects

and will consider helping,should you wish to fill out a PROJECT ASSISTANCE

form.Pease keep in mind that we cannot help with every project.

This will be considered by committee dependant on the size of

the project,the length of time it takes and our availability to

complete the task.

In most cases you will need to provide materials for the project

unless it is a small task where we have suitable offcuts available.

Be aware that all our work is voluntary and a cash donation or

donated goods to the shed would be most welcome should you

choose to do this.
