In 2021, during the COVID-19 pandemic, many people were looking for new hobbies and ways to stay connected with their community. That’s when a group of like-minded individuals in Pascoe Vale came together with an idea to start a Men’s Shed in the area.
However, they quickly realised that there was no Men’s Shed in the immediate area, which made it difficult for men to connect and work on projects together. This realisation only fueled their desire to create a space where men could come together, connect, and work on projects.
The idea quickly gained momentum, and many people in the community expressed interest in donating their tools and machinery to help make the Men’s Shed a reality. With a lot of hard work and dedication, the Coburg and Pascoe Vale Men’s Shed was born.
We aim to be an integral part of the community, providing a space for men to connect, learn new skills, and work on projects together. The Men’s Shed also supports local initiatives to reduce, reuse, and recycle by encouraging members to repurpose materials and use sustainable practices in their projects.
We are proud of our history and grateful to the community for their support in making the Coburg and Pascoe Vale Men’s Shed a reality. Join us today and become a part of our growing community!
