We are Expanding
Inverloch Men's Shed have been successful in obtaining a grant from the Victorian Government to enable and expansion of our shed.
We will be building the extension to house the noisy equipment away from the main work area, with work commencing March 2022.
We would like to thank our local member Jordan Crugnale for her support in obtaining the grant.
