The Men's Display cabinet for the Port Fairy Show SocietyShed, being tenants on the Port Fairy Showgrounds were pleased to be able to assist the Port Fairy Agricultural, Horticultural & Pastoral Society (Show Society) in building new display cabinets for food and cake displays at annual shows. 

Two large cabinets were made in time for the 2010 Show up to the point where the cabinets could then be finished by a glazier to put in the glass panels.



Seats for the Port Fairy-Warrnambool Rail Trail

Robbie, Denis and Keith inspect the rail trail bench seatIn May 2012, the Port Fairy Men's Shed commisioned six bench seats to be positioned along the Port Fary to Warrnambool Rail Trial.  The seats had extra long legs to facilitate deep entrenchment in the ground once they were moved to position on the rail trail.  Robbie Blackmore, Denis Lemke and Keith Bunge (pictures L-R) carried out the work on the seats.  It is expected that, once additional funding is secured, more seats will be built.
