Are you handy with tools? Then the Dallas Neighbourhood House wants to hear from you.

The community organisation is looking to start a men’s shed, but first it needs to find some men interested in running the shed.

Dallas Neighbourhood House manager Suzelle Allet said the organisation received funding for a men’s shed from the Men’s Shed Association last year.

However, the shed has never got off the ground.

“There is a need for something like this in the community. At Dallas Neighbourhood House we get a lot of women attending our programs. We may have five to 10 men that take part but we don’t really take care of the men,” Ms Allet said.

Ms Allet said the shed was big enough to accommodate four or five men working on projects at a time, while the yard of the organisation’s Calivil Street house was big enough for a garden.

Anyone interested in being part of the men’s shed should contact Ms Allet on 9302 2131.
