The year to date has shown constant growth in the activities and membership of the Shed.
Currently we have around 200 names on our books. Regrettably too many members are not financial.
A time for the Committee to be congratulated in growing the Shed in such a positive way and giving men and women in the community a real opportunity to develop new links into the community.
- White Gum Valley School Community Fete- We had a great presence there. Thanks to all the guys who supported us by volunteering time.
- Mad Bastards fund raiser- Great event..A terrific time was had by all. The Ukelyptus group were fantastic. The food exceptional and the generous time given by Dean and Narie after the Show were appreciated.
We had about 160 attend. Paul has the figures and we did quite well as a fund raiser..
…….. But importantly showcased the Shed.
A visit to the Shed by Tim Matheson AMSA’s Patron, where the Freo Men’s shed gained national profile.
Tuesday Evenings- Really encouraged by the Committees vision to open the Shed one night a week. We haven’t promoted this properly yet but I am sure it will be a winner.
Funding 2011 -2112 we have received a funding grant of $50.000 from the City of Fremantle and our capacity to offer the hours we currently do has been secured.
FOR ARTHRITIS RESEARCH FUNDRAISING.
Freo Shed Member Mike Pauly recently completed an amazing epic journey walking from Fremantle to Melbourne.
His buggy was designed and constructed by Fred Parker at the Fremantle Men’s Community Shed.
Mike is putting his feet up in Melbourne for a few weeks and expects to be back in Freo on the 3rd December.
Here is a report from the Melton Shire Council in Victoria, who welcomed Mike as he made his way to Melbourne

Subject: Melton embraces Arthritis Way Walker
Mike Pauly was a very special guest in the Shire recently as he wound his way towards the end of his momentous 3617km unaided walk from Fremantle to Melbourne. The Arthritis Way Walk aimed to raise awareness of arthritis and to raise funds for the ArthritisWA Foundation and I'm delighted to report that the Melton community got behind Mike on both fronts.
Tim Kenworthy- Founder of “Youth Tree” and Freo Shed Committee member has received national acknowledgement for his passionate commitment towards building better communities/ world.
Fantastic, inspirational stuff Tim.
If you get a chance to see the “Tree” constructed by members of Youth Tree, (much of it at the Shed), you too will be amazed at the power of the message it radiates.
