THE Noosa Men's Shed will receive $12,957 to construct a studio suitable for cooking, leather and lead lighting work thanks to the Stronger Communities Program (SCP).
 
"This grant will allow Noosa Men's Shed to erect and convert a donated car port into a space for cooking lessons, following on from the earlier establishment of a vegetable garden," Federal Member for Wide Bay Warren Truss said.

"The studio will also provide a place for leatherworking and lead lighting work.
 
"A number of local building and engineering firms have donated labour and advice to the Noosa Men's Shed which already houses a functioning kitchen and office, woodwork shop, community garden and with a metalwork facility under construction.
 
"Retirees often feel removed from their family networks and past work mates.  This funding will enable the Noosa Men's Shed to provide a place for the men in our community to learn new skills and build new friendships."
