Bright Beginnings for new boat

Students from Bright Beginnings Early Learning Centre were able to test out a new play boat after a donation from the Forbes Men’s Shed.

Bright Beginnings Early Learning Centre Director, Kym Goodall, said the Centre already had a play boat for the children which was falling apart due to age and they reached out to the Men’s Shed to see if they could lend a hand.

Men’s Shed president Norm Haley said they try to help out the community and that building this boat was a different type of challenge for them.

“We would like to thank Bright Beginnings for the opportunity to help,” he said.

The Men’s Shed is a meeting place for local men of all ages. 

They play cards, work on furniture restoration projects and work on other community projects.

Currently a new purpose-built facility for the Forbes Men’s Shed is under construction. More information on the Men’s Shed’s new facility on page 5.
