Men’s Shed deal done

by Anonymous Author

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton and Rolleston Men’s Shed Charitable Trust chairman Stephen Rushton formally sign a lease between the district council and the trust for the site of the Rolleston Men’s Shed. The Trust ‘provides facilities for men to meet and enjoy fellowship while working together building items for the community and for themselves’. Mr Rushton said they wouldn’t be where they are today without the help from the council. “We are very grateful to the Council for providing the land, funding and technical support to help us get this idea off the ground.” One of the current projects the group is working on is making pipe sculptures from designs created by pupils from Rolleston School, which, when finished, will be erected in parks and other prominent spots around Rolleston. The group has also built and installed a Book Exchange Box outside the Anglican Church Cottage in Prebbleton. The Rolleston Men’s Shed in Dynes Road includes woodwork and engineering sheds as well as meeting room with computers.
