The Branxton Greta Men’s Shed is a member-based Incorporated Association founded on the principle of sharing information and developing skills, as well as providing an important role in the Hunter Valley community of providing a much needed meeting place where men and others can find social inclusion, support and camaraderie.
Branxton Greta Men’s Shed also provides an area where women can also get together, every Tuesday, and share conversation, companionship and ideas while engaging in a variety of craft projects.
Men’s health, including mental health is a key aspect of our organisation and, as Professor Barry Golding, a men’s shed patron stated, “Men don’t talk face to face – they talk shoulder to shoulder.”
The Branxton Greta Men’s Shed is located on the old St Mary’s Primary School site in Branxton Street, Greta.
The Branxton Greta Men’s Shed has woodworking, metalwork, small motors and gardening activities, along with the craft activities for the women. One of the other activities the shed is involved with is the mentoring of young people from the local schools.
