Boost for Community Shed project

Glen Eira City Council has received a boost to its Community Shed project — an $80,000 grant from the Victorian State Department of Health and Human Services.

The Community Shed is currently under construction at Moorleigh Community Village in Bignell Road, Bentleigh East. The funding was announced today by Member for Bentleigh Nick Staikos MP.

Glen Eira Mayor Cr Margaret Esakoff said the Community Shed will provide valuable and state-of-the-art facilities for men’s shed, workshop, woodworking, metalwork, art and other trade-based activities for the Glen Eira community.

“When Council asked the community about this type of facility, the response was overwhelmingly in support of not only a men’s shed that is greatly needed in this community, but also opportunities for women, youth and people of all ages to learn a range of practical skills in a friendly and social environment,” Cr Esakoff said.

“Council is very grateful to the State Government for its boost of funding for the Community Shed that will contribute towards the construction and fit out of this valuable new community asset for Glen Eira.”

Completion of this new facility is expected by mid-2020.
