The Shed formed on June 5 2009 and initially set up in a rented shed in Grove's Lane. In 2012 they built their permanent abode, in the Showgrounds. They now boast 85 members on the books.
They recently added a storage shed, which cost $30 and came as flatpack, unopened army surplus from the Vietnam era. It took half a dozen prisoners from the Correctional Centre several winter months to put the tonnes of shed together.
Their latest project is refurbishing town benches from the Visitor Information Centre and from town parks. They also make regular donations to local charitable causes.
