"The Coffs Harbour Men's Shed is built on the hard work of volunteers, and the generous donations and sponsorship of both large and small companies, governments and individuals. We are especially grateful to the Coffs Harbour Local Council who have continually backed us with major grants and the provision of Professional advice from their staff at all levels. Without Coffs Harbour Council's help over the years the Coffs Harbour Men's Shed would have struggled to provide the on-going service to it's members and community, and would not be in the enviable position of having one of the largest facilities in Australia. With a 20 year lease we can look forward to a continued service to the community and the people who will benefit the most, our members."
Alan Larkin, President Coffs Harbour Community Men's Shed, 2017
Coffs Men's Shed reopens after Covid-19
Finally, after months of being closed, the Coffs Harbour Mens Shed is open to limited numbers. Only 10 members are allowed at any time, so opening hours have been broken into 2 sessions, 8am to 11am, and 11am to 2pm. Members are asked to call the day prior to book a spot. You can also ring on any day to check for vacancies. A system to record members who visit is in place and must be adhered to.
Hopefully, restricted conditions will be eased soon so keep watch.
Practically back to normal. Social distancing rules apply, but the shed is back to full swing. All members are to sign in and declare their health status, and visitors must register time and date of visit.
