Keith Steicke (President) said he always had the aspiration to set up a men’s shed and thanks to the efforts of a Ken and Aileen Mckay (long-time friends of Keith’s), the dream has become a reality. Ken and Aileen McKay live on a five acre property in Harrisdale with a large shed, and wanted to contribute something towards the local community.

It started as a discussion around a table at the Livingston SDA church in Canning Vale with a group of people. That conversation grew with the Church offering some furniture for the Shed to store and eventually being sold over a period of time. Thanks to the SDA church that was what really started the ball rolling, So we are very grateful to the SDA Church’s – Livingston for their support.

Ken offered his shed to the group to be use as the men’s shed and already had a lot of woodworking machinery, tools and equipment that could be utilised.
It’s probably only been this year 2019, where we came up with a “working plan” on how to set up the Shed so we could move forward. There has been a lot of hours and hard work to date by a lot of people, to sort the shed, upgrade benches, install a small kitchen and meeting area, provide the shed its own toilet, set up Rules and Regulations and the list went on.

Albeit some men have already started some projects, we will be looking at ways and projects that the  Harrisdale Men’s Shed Inc can contribute back to the Community.

So as of the 4th November 2019, we are officially opened.
A long road ahead – but we are all looking forward to the Journey.
