We started in 1996 with a few men who were passionate about woodturning. In 1998 one of the members, Gordon Hams, built an industrial shed and offered part of this shed as a workshop for the group. In 2012 with membership of 55 members we elected to become an incorporated charity under the banner of the Australian Men's Shed Association, of which we remain a full member.
In 2013 we renamed our club The Milton Ulladulla Men's Shed (M.U.M.S.) in order to reflect our wider community.
Contribute to a better community ethos through community service while promoting the values of tolerance, acceptance, respect and inclusion.
Provide the opportunity for individuals of all ages and gender to meet in a friendly environment while engaging in useful, productive activities.
Develop member's personal and practical skills and improve their self image, personal independence and physical and mental well being.
Everyone is welcome! We have special interest groups that offer a wide range of activities such as:
Woodwork and Wood Turning
Photography and Framing
Furniture Restoration and Construction
Community projects and commissioned work are undertaken. These projects help to sustain the Shed and allow Members to contribute to their local community.
Men's Sheds are places of encouragement for all to take an interest in their own health and well-being. Good health is based on many factors. Becoming a member of a Men's Shed provides a safe and secure environment where friendships can be found and issues discussed in an atmosphere of old-fashioned mateship. Most importantly, there is no pressure. You can just come and have a yarn and a cuppa if that is all you're looking for.
Members of Men's Sheds come from all walks of life. The bond that unites us is that we are people with time on our hands and we would like to do something worthwhile with that time.
Members are able to work on meaningful projects at their own pace, in their own time and in the company of others. A key focus is to advance the well-being and health of members and to encourage social inclusion. Getting involved is important.
