Brunswick men will soon be hammering away in their new Men’s Shed which is expected to be finished by the end of May.

After three years of planning and a whole lot of anticipation, members were ecstatic to see the shed nearing completion.

Brunswick Men’s Shed building coordinator Joe Princi said the shed provided an important space for men in Brunswick.

“The shed is an important place for men to be open about their mental health and wellbeing,” Mr Princi said.

“Mental health and general health is an issue that is not talked about that often, but at the men’s shed nothing is off limits.”

Mr Princi is also a retired builder and like many members, has residual skills that can be put to use. The Men’s Shed is a social place where members can unite and build things to help the community.

Harvey shire president Paul Gillett said it was great to see the new shed in Brunswick.

“It’s a great location and an excellent initiative, especially because Men’s Shed members build things for community groups like the Ag Society,” Mr Gillet said.

The Harvey Shire Council, Brunswick Lions Club, Lotterywest and Alcoa all contributed towards the shed.
