THEY have the space; they have the tools, now all that is needed are more men and more carpentry projects to work on.

More money would be good, too.

That was the message at the formal opening of the Coffs Harbour Men’s Shed yesterday, which saw Unit 3 at 22-24 Marcia Street packed to the gunwales with supporters, Rotarians, Coffs Harbour Employment Support Services representatives, volunteers, tradespeople, businesspeople and politicians.

Cowper MP Luke Hartsuyker, Coffs Harbour Rotary Club president Wayne Stokes and CHESS general manager John Mandile lined up to snip the red ribbon. The Shed is open Wednesday to Friday 8.30am to 3.30pm and manager Peter Murphy can be contacted on 6652 5420.
