PETE’S Community Work Shed on Sorell Street in Bridgewater has been providing a safe workspace or anyone in the community to tinker or build for many years.
In October the Shed held a barbecue and invited community members to attend as a way of thanking people for their support and to encourage new people to learn more about what the Shed offers.
Local Labor Members, Rebecca White, Craig Farrell and Jen Butler, have been long-time supporters of the Shed and were happy to help with its fundraising efforts by buying some of their handcrafted wares.
“Pete’s Community Work Shed has been a big part of this community and continues to offer people of all ages and abilities the chance to learn to make something with their hands,” Mr Farrell said.
The Shed is open Monday to Friday from 9am and supports people to undertake their own project, or help others with activities including woodwork, gardening and general maintenance.
“Some of the most rewarding outcomes for people who get involved with Pete’s Shed are the friendships they make and the sense of pride they develop in learning new skills,” Ms White said.
“The Jordan River Services Committee does so much for our community and Pete’s Shed is just one of the many ways they have helped to make people’s lives better and bring people together,” Ms Butler said.
