Smartway Builders is the principal sponsor of Tawa MenzShed but we need help from the Tawa, Wellington & NZ community to make it happen.

MenzShed Tawa is a registered charity, bringing men and women together in one community space to share their skills, have a laugh, and work on practical wood-working & metal-working tasks individually (personal projects) or as a group (for the Shed or community).

The sort of projects a Shed tackles is entirely up to the Shed concerned, however most Sheds around New Zealand take on some community projects, examples of which include building playgrounds for pre-school centres, repairing toy library stock, repairing old bikes for distribution to poorer communities, building planter boxes for the main street of the local central business district, and the list goes on.

MenzShed Tawa was formed following a public meeting October 2016 when a group decided that a shed could be established in Tawa. Since then, we have managed to obtain access to about 200 sq mtr of space available courtesy of Wellington City Council at the Wellington Rural Fire Force Building in Tawa. A lot of internal and external work needs to be done to get to get the building up to scratch and ready to use, such as:

Use of Funds:

New timber & plywood floor so area is fully accessible

New internal partition walls & ceilings

Meet H & S requirements

Fire-rated door to kitchen and toilet facilities (incl plans and consent)

Benches & work areas

New entry door & mobility ramp

So please help us make a new Tawa Menzshed happen.
