The Proston Men's Shed is happy to announce that we are the recipient of a grant (Tackling Tough Times Together) that will enable us to finish off our workshop and amenities block. We would like to thank the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal, in partnership with the Australian Government, for funding the grant and supporting our regional project. We would also like to thank the Australian Men's Shed Association for their assistance and advice. 2021 will be a big year for us!
