Westvale Community Centre is on the hunt for Brimbank women ready to share their tools of the trade.

The Kings Park centre needs volunteer leaders to help run their Women’s Shed program, especially anyone who has some experience with power tools for their woodworking program.

The Women’s Shed program brings local women together to learn woodwork skills, and also provides an opportunity for women to get involved in a fun community program.

Brimbank mayor Lucinda Congreve encouraged anyone with the right skills to jump in and give the program a go.

“We’re looking for women who have leadership qualities and know how to safely use benchtop power tools to volunteer as program leaders – Women’s Shed Champions,” Cr Congreve said.

“No qualifications are needed; however the volunteers need to be able to demonstrate their knowledge and ability to use power tools such as a table saw, router or scroll saw, before becoming Women’s Shed Champions.

“The Women’s Shed program wants more volunteer leaders so we can accommodate more participants.”

The Women’s Shed sessions are held weekly for two hours in the Westvale Men’s Shed, resuming on Monday, February 11.

Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer leader or getting involved in the program can contact the centre on 9249 4665 or westvale@brimbank.vic.gov.au.
