Nothing beats a coffee or a sandwich after a long stint making and fixing furniture.
The handymen at Taree Manning River Men's Shed will soon welcome a new kitchen thanks to a $6000 national shed development grant from the federal government.
Members will soon replace old cupboards and a sink and install a new flat pack kitchen in the shed.
Member for Lyne Dr David Gillespie visited the shed on Wednesday, July 29.
He said the government is committed to supporting Men's Sheds and encouraging men to meet regularly, support each other and take part in community projects.
"To stay healthy, we need to do regular activities and stay connected with the people around us and therefore our local Men's Shed has become an important part of the Taree-Manning community," Dr Gillespie said.
