Members from sheds as far away as Berwick, Moe & Foster attended the cluster meeting hosted by Inverloch Men's Shed on 27th March. The gathering was held at the Inverloch Hub, where 75 people attended to hear our guest speakers, hear latest news from VMSA & listen to the happenings of the different sheds who attended the day.
We thank our guest speakers, Amy Skelton from Heart Safe communities and Bruce Kent from Victoria Police/Bass Coast council for their informative and entertaining speeches. Amy presented "Dial, Push, Shock" to show how to save lives from a heart attack a community initiative being run in the Bass Coast area. This presentation was followed up by practical demonstrations on CPR and the use of AED's (Defib's) for people to understand the procedures involved when confronted with a medical emergency.
Bruce gave a very entertaining account of his years in the Police force and his work with the Shire Council.
An informative roundup on the happenings of our local shed's was followed by a superb lunch (including the most amazing desert) created by our chef Tex with help from his hard working helpers Alan, Owen, Cam & Tex's lovely wife Trish. To round up a great mornings entertainment, attendees had a tour of the Inverloch Men's Shed and all commented on what a great event it was.
A big thank you to our president Julian, the Committee and Shed members who put in a big effort for a great event to showcase our town and our great shed.
