SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday September 19 2017 9 Rubble halts further progress on men’s shed • By Georgia O’Connor- Harding PATIENCE IS wearing thin over slow progress for the construction of the new Lincoln Men’s Shed. It has taken more than a year for the shed, to be located north of the Lincoln Rugby Club, to get off the ground. The men’s shed secretary Myles Rea said it is waiting for the district council to clear a large amount of soil from the site so it can commence construction of the site. “They promised to clear some rubble from last July . . . we hoped at the end of last month we would have the foundations down,” he said. Members are now concerned if the project is not advanced quickly, it will lose its funding. The group which has received funding from organisation Pub Charity Limited for its project estimated to cost $70,000, has concerns it may lose the money if progress isn’t made. Fifty thousand dollars was WAITING: The Lincoln Men’s Shed has met further delays. donated to the project from Pub Charity Ltd in March and the men’s shed was given a deadline of three months to have the foundations down. “If the charity consider we haven’t complied with their consent who knows we may have to pay for it ourselves,” Mr Rea said. But the district council’s community projects and facilities manager Cameron Warr said the district council cleared the site in February. “The men’s shed subsequently changed the design of their proposed building, which required the district council to seek a variation to the resource consent,” he said. The resource consent was granted in July and the district council recently started additional clearing to allow for the revised design. Men’s shed member Pat Nicholas said while the project has taken a while the weather had not been kind to the district council. “We made some progress around Christmas time . . . that seems to move along quite well and then it seems to hit a road block every so often,” he said. Selwyn Times reported in July last year discussions were under way with the district council for the men’s shed. Mr Warr said the district council had provided assistance to the group since the idea was put forward including help with the establishment of the committee, their constitution and legal status, and advice on funding. Mr Rea said as well as building the shed, it hopes to eventually build on an annex to have toilets, a meeting room and kitchen. He said while there are probus clubs and walking groups in Lincoln, there was nowhere for a man to go have a yarn, a cup of coffee and make a stall or TV stand. Although a shed is yet to be built, the group has already made a contribution of “book boats” to Lincoln Primary School for them to sit and read in. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think the Lincoln Men’s Shed has taken too long to be built?
