The Shed has been formed to support Men in the Upper Kiewa Valley with their health and well being. Men are welcome to get involved and are encouraged to make contact with our secretary to find out how to do so. This website has contact information at the foot of the Home Page and in the menu bar (far right). The Shed was operational by 12th January 2016 when it was opened to members for the first time.
What is a Men’s Shed? — Shed’s provide a service for men to improve their physical, mental & social health using the environment of a Shed and the many activities and projects it can provide for the men to work on.
The Shed also assists other community groups to conduct their activities e.g. supervision at the Music Festival & Sweet Valley Sounds, collecting the gate entry for the home games of the Dederang/Mt Beauty Football & Netball Clubs, erecting and dismantling the Christmas street decorations, manning the drink stations for the Mt Beauty 1/2 marathon and Neighbourhood Centre projects.
The Mt Beauty & District Men’s Shed believes in supporting men’s health & well-being by providing them with a safe and busy environment to improve their: productivity, self worth, value to the community, connectivity to friends and purpose in their lives, all this in an atmosphere of old-fashioned mateship.
It is a unique asset that the UKV community can be proud of. It is a place that encourages them to be physically and mentally active and valued members of the community.
The Shed is located at: 2 Tennis Court Ave. Mount Beauty.
