Community Projects 

Over the years we have completed a myriad of projects for the local community. 

We are very proud of the role we have in the community and the enormous satisfaction we get from handing over the project. 


Any member can take part in the building of the project no matter what their skill level as there is always someone to supervise and assist. 

Here are just a very small sample of our projects since 2012.

Tool Carrier for Sea Scouts

We are very proud to support the local youth groups in their various pursuits.  Here are Rod Hall (L) and Don Laird with one of the many Tool Carriers built at the Shed for the Sea Scouts

Tables for Parks Victoria

Chris Sargood (R)  with the Wilson's Promontory light house keepers on presentation of tables made at the Shed from recycled wood taken from the lighthouse.  The tables are now to be found in the lighthouse keeper's cottage.


Christmas Trees 

At the shed we spend the greater part of the year building these trees from recycled wood and in various sizes.  Here you see Tony Donahue inspecting the finished products before they are taken to the South Melbourne

Market stall just before Christmas.  Its a good project for members to fill in time gaps and acquire new skills.

This project was to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the siege by the much vaunted Rats of Tobruk.  Two teams worked in tandem under the leadership of Chris Sargood.  Carcass Team: Peter King and Dermot Avon. Lid Team: Steve Shoup and Daniel Butler. Design by Chris Sargood and Rod Hall.   Well done on completing just in time  during the COVID lockdowns.
