Monthly mini markets are going to be held by The Hills Mens Shed at Castle Hill on the first Saturday of every month from May through till September.
The Hills Mens Shed was established in 2009 to provide an environment for seniors to continue their worthwhile contribution to themselves and also to the local community.
There are now approximately 100 members who can attend the club premises at Eric Mobbs Reserve, Ferguson Avenue Castle Hill mainly Tuesday to Thursday from 9am to 3pm.
It provides an outlet for both social interaction and community involvement.
The group has been making Community Library boxes for books (pictured) and toys for the Children’s Hospital at Westmead to name a few things.
Covid-19 has been a difficult time for the club’s fundraising activities which is why members are keen to return to holding markets.
The first mini market, on May 1 from 8.30am to 12.30pm will offer some great gift ideas especially for Mother’s day and other special occasions.
Items for sale include handmade wooden items, and preloved and new items ranging from chopping boards and jewellery boxes to children’s toys and firewood.
There will also be a craft stall, cakes and slices, preserves, books and plants.
If any repairs or special jobs needed to be done the men from The Hills Mens Shed will be more than happy to help.
For any further information on products sold or any repairs needed please phone Geoff Sprainger on 0416 699 379.
