About Us

 

MenzShed Kapiti is where men meet for a chat and play with ‘boys toys’ to make things!

MenzShed Kapiti is an incorporated Society, Registered as a a non-profit charitable organisation.

(Registered Charitable Entity Nr CC45795)

We commenced operations in 2010 to promote the health and well-being of mainly retired and older men.

Our shed is a place to socialise with like-minded men, to practice old skills, learn new ones, share know-how, pursue hobbies, enjoy company and give back to the community.group

Our members

  • are retired or only work part time and have spare time on their hands
  • now mix with a new bunch of guys, having lost touch with work mates
  • like a laugh, sharing experiences and talking about old times
  • have the opportunity to be involved in community projects
  • complete projects from home using shared tools and others expertise
  • enjoy the occasions of working with new mates

Who says men can’t multi-skill

Menzshed – a great place for men to have a cuppa and a chat, use tools and machinery in our well equipped workshop and complete  projects for the community and projects from home.

 

MenzShed Kapiti operates on low overheads in a Kapiti Council leased building with grants from the Kapiti Coast District Council [KCDC], Waikanae Community Board, a $20 annual membership subscription and some sponsorship.

 

Estates, people and firms have generously provided tools, machinery & some material for use in our daily activities. Materials used for community projects are donated or purchased from local suppliers at specially discounted rates.

We have a separate building fund for our fit-out and building extension and rely on special projects and the generosity of donations for this work.
