Oberon Men's Shed has recently completed an all-weather awning at its shed complex.

The awning has multiple uses and now provides a covered outdoor area to provide protected access between buildings, an extended area for work and an outdoors patio where members can enjoy barbecues and entertaining away from Oberon's severe climate.

The NSW Government provided a grant via its Community Building Partnership and the funds were presented to the Men's Shed by the state Member for Bathurst Paul Toole, Minister for Lands and Forestry and Minister for Racing.

Shed president Roy Smith said the addition was welcome and provided more comfort for the Oberon Shed members.

"The awning was designed and built by members and we are truly grateful for the enthusiasm and building expertise," he said.

Oberon Men’s Shed members meet every Tuesday at the Oberon Showground in Ross Street. Men's Sheds are a place of encouragement for all to take an interest in their own health and well-being.
