THE DOORS will be oficially opened at last at the Murwillumbah Men's Shed.

"After four years of hard graft we will be officially open for business," said a happy John Pitt, the group's secretary.

Tweed Shire mayor barry Longland will do the honours on November 21 with an afternoon and evening of music, fun and fellowship.

"Of course, there will be some good tucker,Too," said Mr Pitt.

This is a chance to take a look at the facilities, including the woodwork room, mertal work shed, carft room and meeting room.

"we think it has been worth the wait," said Mr Pitt.

The non alcohollic event is the culmination of very hard work to provide somewjere for men to meet and create.

The Men's Shed in Murwillumbah received $5000 in funding under Round Three of the Australian Government's Men's Shed Development Program last March.

Richmond MP Justine Elliot said men's sheds were proving very popular in strengthening communities and in promoting men's physical and mental health.

"So much so, the concept has been taken up in a thousand Australian communities where sheds offer a safe, friendly and inclusive meeting place where local men can find social support and camaraderie,' she said.

All sheds in Australia can apply for up to $10,000 in financial support for a range of activities.

A total of 31 sheds from across Australia have received funding in this round with some being successful in more than one category.
