A NEW disabled toilet and wheelchair access path at the Shoalhaven Heads Men’s Shed in Curtis Park has been officially opened.
In July 2012 the Shoalhaven Heads Men’s Shed received $10,330 in funding from the state government to provide disabled access to the toilets.
The Men’s Shed caters for visits from groups such as Clelland Lodge and the RSL Nursing Homes once a month but there were no disabled toilets with wheelchair access.
The men’s and women’s single toilets have been converted to a men’s and women’s unisex with disabled access.
Founded in 2006, the Shoalhaven Heads Men’s Shed makes a range of items which are then available for purchase, including myna bird traps, bird feeders and large size wooden Christmas decorations for the home and garden which always bring a lot of joy to local residents.
They also support local charities including Hands Across NSW, which provides assistance to drought affected farmers, and repair children’s toys and furniture at Jerry’s Bailey’s Preschool which shares Curtis Park with the shed.
