The Men's Shed North Shore is a community-based facility for men. It is an ideal drop-in place for men of all ages and backgrounds to gather to work on their personal or community projects, come in for a cuppa or just socialise with other men.
The Shed is approx 400m2 with woodworking and engineering workshops that are fully equipped with tools and machinery that can be used for a variety of small to medium sized projects. It also has a kitchen / lunchroom with cooking facilities
The Shed is on single level and is designed to be mobility friendly.
There are many types of activities that can be undertaken, including:
Men's Shed North Shore with the new engineering extension on the right
Part of the newly refurbished woodworking shop
in 2012, an elected Board of Trustees obtained from Auckland Council a lease of a site at 34 Elliott Avenue, Glenfield (in Elliott Reserve) and had constructed a 300m² TotalSpan shed. During 2012, members fully insulated The Shed and completed the internal fit out.
The Shed was officially opened on Sunday April 7th 2013.
In early 2016, an extra 100m² was added to The Shed to more than double the amount of space available for engineering. Once again, members chipped in and completed the internal fit-out to a very high standard.
It is also hoped to extend the Shed a bit more in the near future to make more room for electronics and model making.
