Lions Tinker shed.
The Tinker shed is co located at the Barossa Village Maintenance depot on Research Road Nuriootpa. The prime purpose of the Tinker shed is to provide a venue where interested people can spend time doing projects that they regard as a hobby or pastime.
Many retirees, when they relocate, do not have space for a work shed. The Tinker shed provides that facility and enables mixing with other people with similar interests.
The shed is open every Tuesday, 9am to 4pm, to the general public.
It is also open Wednesday mornings, to provide occupational therapy to residents of the Barossa Village, Tanunda Lutheran Home and people on Home Care Packages. for more nformation click here /files/barossa.sa/The Tinkers Shed - Weblink.pdf
