These are just some of the things you can learn at the Wynyard Men’s Shed ladies’ day from 9am until noon tomorrow .
With more than 40 years building experience, committee member Brian Randall will answer any home maintenance questions you have at the free women-only workshop.
Chairman Peter Massey said while this was the first session of its kind, it would be held every three months if it was successful.
“We’ve had a lot of women asking would we hold a day like this,” Mr Massey said.
“Being a men’s shed we can’t really have the session during a normal meeting because the blokes come and they are more likely to communicate with each other about different things when women aren’t around.”
Mr Massey urged women to come along and ask those questions that have been bugging them, no matter how big or small they may be.
“You’d be surprised to know that there would be a lot of blokes out there that would ask the same question but aren’t brave enough to do so,” he said.
The ladies’ day will be held from 9am until noon tomorrow at the Wynyard Men’s Shed on the Wynyard High School grounds at the Cotton St end. For more information phone Peter Massey on 0408 351 388.
