The best thing to happen to Mangawhai
The Mangawhai Shed is an opportunity for people to commune over a shared passion for making things.
to be the chosen centre for the support and encouragement of our common passion for making things.
to provide a forum and physical location where members regularly share skills and make friends with the primary purpose of supporting and enhancing their practical skills and well-being.
to draw on the collective knowledge and skills of its membership in order to support community-based projects.
Immediately: for the establishment of a centrally based location accessible to local residents in Mangawhai Village and Heads
Medium term: for the acquisition of tools and machinery across a broad range of crafts.
Long term: for a development of long term trust type fund that will ensure sustainability.
The Mangawhai Shed currently has no resources of its own and is hosted by kind support of one local member. These premises are private property. You are welcome to bring your own tools and equipment to promote your own craft ambitions. Any sharing of resources are arranged and agreed between individuals; no claims for loss or damage will be accepted by either the Mangawhai Shed or the proprietor. The Shed is not a means for promoting private business venture but is open to discussion on such matters. As we grow in membership all the above is likely to change.
We welcome any and all support to grow this local initiative for the benefit of all; contact Steve today
