The Pyrmont Ultimo Glebe (PUG) Men’s Shed, recently established and including several Jacksons Landing men (including chair Ross Hindmarsh), is going well and engaging many apartment-dwellers who yearn for the sheds where they pottered and tinkered when they had their own houses. The group was first accommodated by the Sydney Heritage Fleet, where they assembled a vast library of tools and helped to restore the old ferry Kanangra. Now the City of Sydney has provided two spaces under the viaduct at Jubilee Park, which members have renovated and equipped as a workshop, a recreation facility and temporary kitchen, and storage. Deputy Mayor Robyn Kemmis will formally open these premises on 31 July with a pancake morning tea (from 10am until noon).
The shed is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8am to 1pm, with Thursday lunch at 12.30pm and finish at 2pm.
