Kincumber Day 2007

Kincumber Men's Shed once again attracted attention at the Kincumber Day festival.

while Alan & Gordon demostrate Scroll Saw

Peter Jessop led the team of men from The Shed who displayed items produced at the shed, exhibited the display board picturing activities of the "shedders" and the operational Scroll Saw.

The Scroll Saw was hard pressed to meet the demand for "hugs". These were being produced on the spot as takeaway "hugs". This activity attracts adult attention for with its noise and industriousness and children for the gift hugs and the fascination of seeing something created in front of their eyes.

This was another successful promotion for the Shed with Peter & Joan, Wally, Alan, Gordon & Kim keeping the stand well covered during the day.
Will Peter doing anything to promote The Shed?

Belinda Neal visit

Belinda Neal visit to the Kincumber Mens Shed.

She spent the time hearing the concerns of the group about the upcoming election and the impact that might have on the funding for ongoing work at the shed.

The woodturners presented her with Wooden Clock in the hope that she might have good fortune with the "It's Time" theme being recycled for the upcoming poll.

Toolbox meetings are the place to be!!

Central Coast Community Congress

The Kincumber Men's Shed was nominated for a Community Project Award at the second annual Central Coast Community Congress Community Building Awards. The event

The shaky photo records all of the nominees in this category.
Peter Jessop is up there hiding among the worthy throng.

Alas, Kincumber Men's Shed were pipped a the post and received only the nomination on this particular occasion at the Wyong Shire Council chambers.

Peter & Joan Jessop, Wally Morison and Kim Hopkins, representing Kincumber Men's Shed at the occasion, all applauded loudly for the many awards won by the local Kincumber community.

There are number of photos of the event at this site here. (see if you can find wally's famous shorts in the crowd ... an online version of Where's Wally)

Celebrating and recognising the diverse people and organisations on the Coast working hard to build community connections, the awards night attracted a huge number of nominations in 8 different categories. With 150 local people attending the night, the event is set to take off over the coming years as the Congress Working Party continues to promote, resource and celebrate everyone who works to build a strong, vibrant and diverse community here on the Coast."
