The award of $35,000 to Noosa Men’s Shed will allow the development of a Men’s Health Annexe adjacent to the Woodshed.
The successful application focused on provision of a dedicated First Aid Room, Health and Wellness area suitable for education and activity sessions and inclusion of a space for emerging technologies such as 3D printing.
The Construction Team at the Shed have been developing strategies to clear the proposed area, relocate a container and the build the Health Annexe. It should be in service for our members early in 2020.
Be Fitter Fitness Program commences on Tuesday 8th October.
A survey of members conducted earlier in the year indicated that about 30 members were interested in attending a fitness program,
- A local physiotherapy business, Alchemy in Motion has provided one of their staff, Exercise Physiologist Emma Perry, to manage the exercise sessions on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. The sessions to be held initially in the Long Shed, will commence at 7:00am and finish in time for the day’s activities at the Shed.
- Alchemy in Motion has also donated small equipment, balance blocks, mats, Swiss Balls etc to the program and we are grateful of their support.
- A local Personal Trainer, Garry Robinson, had donated his services for sessions which will be conducted on Mondays at 9:00am if there is sufficient interest.
- We are hopeful of receiving funding from AMSA to the value of $7950 in the very near future, with this grant being directed to 2020 Spanner in the Works program as well as some extra small equipment for the Be Fitter Program.
