The establishment of a Men’s Shed in Baldivis is one step closer after the idea was strongly backed at a community meeting last week.

About 30 residents attended a meeting last Tuesday night at the Mary Davies Library.

The Telegraph reported earlier this year that the Rockingham Model Railway Group was looking for a new home in Baldivis, with hopes to also incorporate a Men’s Shed.

Morris Pavlinovich from WA Men’s Shed Association addressed the attendees, with a number of people putting their hands up to form a small committee or working group.
