The Airds Bradbury Mens Shed purchase a Ute!
In 2016, the Airds Bradbury Mens Shed were successful in obtaining a Community Building Partnership Grant to purchase a second hand Ute. The ute will be used to collect donations of tools and timber they receive from the community as well as deliver the finished goods that they make for community groups and projects. Up until now, it has always been a problem trying to rope someone in to bringing a trailer or being available.
The photo is with Greg Warren, our local MP, who is delivering the cheque from the NSW Government.
The second photo is the proud members of the Menshed around their new (almost) Ute.
