 The Cavy Club President Machelle approached the Shed to inquire if we could make some carry cages for the Guinea Pigs the members to take to shows and exhibit. 

Cavy Club members breed various varieties of Guinea Pigs for public exhibitions.  

It was agreed after sourcing the materials that we would make 10 and possibly more in the future. Clive, John and Steve jumped to the task and made them in record time as they were needed for an upcoming show.

                   Many thanks fellas for a job well done

Alex Lee has been an very active member of our Shed since January 2010. He was an electrician by trade and an extremely valuable man to have in our Shed.

He worked tirelessly for us fixing,
repairing and tagging electrical equipment for all and sundry including other Sheds. He had just celebrated his 90th birthday on the 29th March.   

He had not been feeling well for some time and sadly on the evening/morning of  April 20 we lost Alex due to complications of his various ailments.

R.I.P. Alex you will be missed

 We have had very little to report of late due to Covid19 but things are slowly getting back to normal.

On the 7th April we received a call from local State MP Adam Crouch's office requesting asking if we would host a visit from the Premier Gladys Berejiklian on the 14th April. It was to be after she opened the new Terrigal Boardwalk around 4.45pm. We were also informed some presidents from other Men's Sheds on the Coast would like to be present. 

The Premier arrived as scheduled & we were impressed by  how down to earth & approachable she was. She was pleased how we managed the Shed during Covid19 especially the precautions we took after our re-opening in July 2020. She then said she was amazed how the Sheds although independent came together as one in the drought, bushfire & flood disasters our Country has experienced lately.

Although only a half hour visit The Premier left with a new insight into what the Men's Shed's are trying to achieve & the diligent way we are achieving our aims.
