The Weston Creek Men’s Shed is now “up and running”. Initially, we are a ‘social’ Shed where men can meet for a ‘cuppa’ and a chat, as well as having other activities including speakers, visits, and occasional lunches. We currently operate under the auspices of the Rotary Club of Canberra Weston Creek.
We meet each Thursday afternoon, from 1.30 pm, at the Weston Creek Uniting Church hall, in Parkinson Street, Weston (next-door-but-one to the Irish Club). (Re-commencing 22 January 2015)
Please join us, or for more information about our Shed, contact:

Given that this is most unlikely to occur, Council suggests the following electorates:
Council clearly wants Weston Creek to remain as one entity. Our connection, if it is with any other settled District at the moment, is with Woden though we are far closer now to the Molonglo District as it develops. This combined Electorate [Weston Creek, Woden and Molonglo] will grow with the development of Molonglo.
