If you are one of those residents who just can’t get an edge on your cutting implements, the Tilligerry Men’s Shed has the answer. Ken Boyd, their expert sharpener and his new $2000 machine will do the job for you at a minimal cost.

This service is just one of many that these experienced artisans offer to the public. They restore furniture, toys, broken artefacts and will even visit your home for minor maintenance jobs such as rewashering taps or constructing ramps for the disabled. They will also advise you on how to go about handyman jobs if you’re unsure.

Perhaps you’d like to become a member? You don’t even have to join in if it’s interacting with others that you would find satisfying. They like a good yarn with other blokes.

At the moment they are short of gardeners to tend their vegie patch and to pot up plants in the nursery. Interested?

The Men’s Shed is located by turning in off the main road at the Catholic Church then turning right. It is situated just past the Aquatic Centre and the Council Works Depot behind the sports fields.
