Our Irish Link

Our links with the Killarney Shed in Ireland continue to grow and recently we sent this Certificate of Fellowship to them.

Mark, our resident creative member, designed a presentation certificate that linked our Sheds under the  nations flags and the combined  logos of the two Sheds.

We hope Killarney Men's Shed will display this framed certificate in a prominent place in their Shed as a reminder to all of the links we have developed.

Helping the Blind to Read

Bateau Bay Shed continues to work in support of Vision Australia and our latest project was to make a Braille Teaching Board.

This will be used with young blind children when teaching them the Braille alphabet.

During the design phase we learnt that when this alphabet was invented in France by Mr Braille he didn't use the letter "W" as it was not included in the French alphabet.  Thus the reason for the 4 white pins which now make the letter "W" on the bottom right hand side of the board.
