Kingaroy men to band together at community breakfast

THE Kingaroy Men's Shed will hold a community meeting and breakfast this weekend.

More than 70 men put down their names at the first meeting in November to indicate interest in forming an ongoing men's shed in Kingaroy.

Member Eric Ford said significant planning had taken place by the men's shed committee and the first official men's shed meeting would be held tomorrow.

"There is a great need for men, regardless of age, race or background to get together and enjoy each other's company," Mr Ford said.

"Many men in our society are living really lonely lives."

The purpose of the men's shed is to provide a place where men can make friends and enjoy practical and fulfilling activities together.

"This is a community venture that we hope will be of great benefit and make a difference to the lives of many men in the Kingaroy area," Mr Ford said.

The club welcomes interested men to go along and be part of the exciting venture in Kingaroy.

The community meeting and breakfast will take place at 7.30am at the Kingaroy Showgrounds GB Building, in Youngman St.

The committee will present the Kingaroy Men's Shed Handbook and hope to sign up members.

Cost is $5.
