Learmonth Community Skills Shed

A new Community Skills Shed is being constructed at the Learmonth Recreation Reserve.

The shed will provide a place for the Learmonth Community Skills Shed group to come together to undertake community shed activities such as woodworking, metalwork, and other creative pursuits. 

It will also be a space that other community groups can gather, have meetings, and run activities.

The scope and budget for the initial stage of the project is modest including a shed with a kitchen and accessible toilet, and which addresses minimal requirements for parking and connection. 

However, the concept plans also demonstrate the longer-term aspirations for the site including the addition of a veranda, and opportunities for community gardening and other activities.
