Men's Shed crafts for little hands

THE Wingham Men’s Shed has carefully crafted new timber items for a nature inspired playgroup.

Timber toys are an essential part of the Manning Valley Little Sunflower Steiner Inspired Playgroup. Using natural and handmade items in their creative play has been a long tradition of the Taree based group.

Sourcing new items for the group is not always easy but fortunately the talented volunteers at the Wingham Men's Shed were able to come to the rescue recently.

Timber rolling pins and pegs were on the shopping list and the Men's Shed volunteers were more than capable of custom making the pieces. The new items have already made their way into the little hands of local youngsters and playgroup co-ordinator Lyn Heher is delighted. "We are so grateful to the men's shed, we love the pegs and pins," she said.
