This July on a warm winter’s day the men of the region gathered at Shed West on Brookfield Rd, Kenmore to ‘down tools’ and tuck in to a good old fashioned sausage sizzle. Mates stood shoulder to shoulder with tongs, sauces and buttered rolls while the Grill Masters fed the masses. The BBQ is held every third Tuesday from 12pm and I was thrilled to be invited. The men were very welcoming and I was afforded the opportunity to say a few words of gratitude for the great work they do and for the inclusive community spirit they foster. As Councillor, I’m a strong advocate for cohesive communities and harnessing the wisdom of inter-generational experience. Shed West is a wonderful facility for learning new skills, contributing to projects and the sharing of knowledge between men of all ages and abilities. Men, it was an honour to join you for a BBQ lunch – thank you. http://www.shedwest.com
And ladies, it did not go unnoticed that the men also did the washing up!
