The Rockhampton Men’s Shed Inc.has followed a direction of our National Office and have temporally restricted access to our shed and until further advice from our National Office and at the direction of our members, will at the direction of our executive, only be doing work for Home Assist which is an essential service that we do. What will happen in this case will be that I will organise for 2 of our members to attend the building with myself or our vice president Les Brooks and carry out the required work. This will keep our operations to a minimum during this very worrying time.I hope all at the people of the Rockhampton & Livingstone areas and indeed all in Queensland and Australia keep safe and we all come through this.
