Waterwheel Community Shed

    On Friday 7th July, the Shed hosted the City of Armadale Mayor, Cr Ruth Butterfield, along with Cr Gary Smith, Cr Scott Mosey and the program team from the City of Armadale, to demonstrate three promotional models for the "Switch Your Thinking" program.
    After a brief introduction, our Treasurer Henry Zelones, the main contributor to the construction of the model demonstration home, together with lighting and water use demonstration units, went through the various items and their use in helping to reduce power and water usage. Unfortunately, due to Western Power doing maintenance work close by, the Shed was without power! However, as the workshop has been refurbished with the principals of helping to reduce power use, we were able to host to event successfully.
    Thank-you to all the Shed members who came in, and to the City of Armadale for morning tea.
    Switch Your Thinking 
    After many weeks of toil in the wood turning shed and outside, the dynamic duo finished the four bookshelves, ready to be delivered on Thursday 3rd August.
    After they were delivered and installed (an exact fit according to Steve!), we received the following message:
    “A massive thanks to you all again for my bookcases. Instead of paying the balance I transferred another $500. I hope you can get yourselves something nice. Keep up the fantastic work that you do x”
    The extra money received will help cover the cost of our newly acquired staple gun, which makes the assembly of such items so much easier.
    Very well done Steve and Derek, I wonder what your next project will be?
