Men’s shed offers support

Friendship and camaraderie is what Kapunda resident, Mr John Matters enjoys most about the Barossa Leisure Options Community Men’s Shed.

John moved to Kapunda nearly seven years ago and it didn’t take him long to become a men’s shed participant and volunteer before taking up the paid coordinator’s role.

“I enjoy the company,” said John.

“Not just me but everyone who comes here can talk about things and people have different ideas about a problem at home or with friends.

“The most important thing, apart from the obvious rules that you have got to have, is that you can just come and be yourself.”

Illness brought John and wife, Pauline to the region after they decided a complete change of life was needed.

They came to Kapunda and decided they liked it so much that they bought a block of land and built their home.
