The Rotary Club of Morialta was initially approached in 2008 by
local MP Lindsay Simmons and the Morialta Men’s Shed, with a
request to establish a Men’s Shed at Athelstone. We researched the
practicality and approached The City of Campbelltown for support.
They agreed to allot us land for the project and we planned a
building and program involving cash outlay, donations-in-kind and
the donated land. The Club then applied for a grant from
Community Benefit S.A. So with funds from the Rotary Club of
Morialta, City of Campbelltown and the grant the project was finally
completed and fitted out with machinery, hand tools, power tools
and other equipment.
City of Campbelltown prepared the site; laid the concrete floor and
apron; dug the trench for electrical services.
It was decided to call the facility the Community Workshop,
opening it up to a broader range of activities within the community.
It is situated on Maryvale Road Athelstone behind the Community
The Community Workshop is operating Tuesday and Thursday 9.00 to 12.00 and 1.00 to 4.00 Saturday 9.00 to 12.00. Some projects are used for fundraising or people come and do their own project.
