The Point Nepean Men’s Shed would like to thank all the following organisations and community groups, for their ongoing commitment and support for the development of the Men’s Shed.


Studio 1 / 4 Merino Street Capel Sound 3940. Tel: +61 414 663 357

“Thank You” for your input in design and creation of templates for our bird boxes, microbat boxes and all those great Xmas decorations.All amazing.


Next time you bite the head off a Freddo frog, cross the Bolte bridge, watch the tennis in Melbourne, stretch a Natural Confectionery Co snake, or see an ad with an ice cream that won’t melt but looks good enough to eat, Studio 57F1 was there helping set the foundations“.

Bunnings at Rosebud have been a great supporter for all our projects – Sorrento Primary Craft program, RSL memorial crosses, Buddy Benches, “Letters to Father Christmas”, Billy Karts, beach clean boards, planter boxes, hooded plover shelters and of course the odd BBQ.

Massive thanks for all the support we have received.

A great supporter of Men’s Sheds.

Our local Bank has been supporting us with the creation of our Mobile Workshop and an upgrade to our kitchen facilities.

Very much appreciated by all our members.

The Shire has been a major contributor to the success of the Shed.

A 10-year  lease has been granted over the Hangar, Sorrento Funding has seen upgrades to the bathrooms, kitchen, roof, and external facade.

A 10-year lease over the storage facility in Stringer Reserve has been issued, plus approving the connection of the site to the existing power grid.

The Shire has provided invaluable financial support for our projects at the local primary schools and the Pre-schools, through various grants. The latest ventures have been providing Buddy Benches, materials for the Sorrento Primary Intergenerational Craft program and the ongoing Rye Primary Bike program.

State and Federal Government Funding

Several Volunteer Support grants, Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care National Shed Development Programme grants and Stronger Community grants have helped us provide tools and equipment, first aid training and updates to the facilities at Stringer Reserve.

All these grants have made a huge contribution to enhance the Shed we now enjoy.


In 2019, we were awarded a grant to support Birdlife Australia in the recovery from the devastating bushfires. 

In 2023, we received a Federal Government grant to connect the storage shed to the power grid and make all the required changes to the circuitry inside the building.
