Narooma Mens Shed have benefited as successful applicants in Round Fifteen of grants to Australian Mens Sheds under the Australian Government National Shed Development Programme (the NSDP) with a grant of $ 2650.00 to go towards their healthy cooking programme - to address food safety requirements and to acquire a gas upright stove and refrigerator. This will come as good news to those in Montague Art and Craft Society Inc who have been spending more and more time at the Shed. Montague Art and Craft Society Inc members were recently advised that its president wished ‘to manage MACS as a sustainable organisation’. In the membership newsletter the first step identified towards a sustainable future is to reduce the ongoing Studio accommodation costs incurred by MACS by moving MACS Studio from 92 Campbell Street Narooma to a more affordable premises at 24 Glasshouse Rocks Road Narooma being the Narooma Mens Shed. It was stated that the new premises "will afford MACS larger spaces for the art and craft workshops, adequate parking and disability access, and the opportunity to expand workshops to accommodate the growing membership. "This move will also enhance the synergy that MACS enjoys with Narooma Mens Shed. Already there is a joint project under way with MACS members designing and making manes and tails for rocking horses that Mens Shed members are making and marketing. This move has not been universally agreed to as yet so a Special General Meeting will be held on 20th October to give members the opportunity to confirm the Committee’s decision. All MACS members are encouraged to attend the meeting.
