And what about the scratched dining table or the broken picture frame?

Worry no more because there is a happy band of like-minded blokes at the Tilligerry Men’s Shed who will do the job for you with a minimum of fuss and at very little cost.

“We make and repair things for ourselves but we get great satisfaction in putting something back into the community by making new items, restoring and repairing furniture, fixing and repairing toys or just giving advice to people who don’t know how to go about the handyman problems they have,” Col Magick said.

“Quite often we consult one another as some members have expertise in  special areas and we often work as a team on a project,” he said.

“It’s also about social interaction and exchanging ideas; indeed some members just come along for a yarn and a cup of tea.”

“I was particularly proud of a restoration project I did recently. A family dumped the contents of their deceased mother’s home in a skip but one of them rescued a beautiful 1920s folding card table. I was able to bring this little piece of history back to life.”

The men’s shed is located at Mallabula next door to the Port Stephens Council works depot near the ovals.

It operates between the hours of 8am and noon from Tuesdays to Fridays.
