We are an enthusiastic and very active group of men (women are also welcome), who are working together to establish a new Men's Shed in Silverdale, on the reserve next to Bunnings. With a building consent and resource consent already in place, we have begun fund-raising to get the 450 square metre shed erected. Grants have been applied for from two organizations and there are more in the pipeline.
To date, there are 45 paid-up founder-members and 190 on our mailing list. Use of the Men’s Shed will be limited to members only, so why not join us now as a founder-member and be part of this exciting new venture? You will have great opportunities to get out of the house and enjoy the company of many others, who are just like you – well before the official opening.
A storage unit is already full of donated tools and machines, ready for use from day one once the new Hibiscus Men’s Shed opens it's doors. There will be an excellent kitchen, relaxing area and toilet facilities, plus ample parking.
We are indebted to the many companies and organisations whose names appear on this website, who have provided services to us, and we have also been helped greatly by the New Zealand MENZSHED organisation and Men's Shed North Shore
