Work starts on building Men's Shed
The Umina Beach Men's Shed group has finally been able to make a start on its new shed located at 90 Osborne Ave.
"It has been a long road with many hurdles placed in our way," said secretary Mr Vic Brown.
"However, we have made good progress on the ground in recent weeks."
The development application for the new shed was approved by Central Coast Council in mid-2020.
While the considerable amount of work to get the shed out of the ground commenced immediately, it is only recently that the work has been evident, Mr Brown said.
Now, he said: "The site is fenced with temporary fencing, pegged out and the office building is in place.
"There is more work to be done.
"The next major step is laying of the slab which, weather permitting, should occur within the next couple of weeks."
Mr Brown said members were all attending the Woy Woy Lions Club's monthly car boot sale is held in the Rogers Park car park.
"Shed members man a stall to sell quality items that are not required at the shed," he said.
The next car boot sale is scheduled for May 29 from 7am to 1pm.
