Bemm Shed has a home

Thursday 11 January

The community of Bemm River has purchased a building for its new Men’s Shed group, handing the cheque over to East Gippsland Shire Council recently.


The Bemm River Progress Association has been assisting in the establishment of the town’s Men’s Shed. President David Sturgess said the building will be a good fit for the group.


“The former Country Fire Authority building is the perfect spot for the Men’s Shed. It already has three-phase power which is fantastic because some of the equipment that will be used needs that type of power,” Mr Sturgess said.


The facility will be known as the ‘Bemm Shed’ to reinforce that both men and women are welcome.


The purchase of the building cost $31,000 and was funded by a Victorian Government grant.


A community meeting is planned in the coming months to decide on building refurbishments with an opening day also planned for early in the year.
