Welcome  to  Henley  Mens  Shed

Covid 19 - Alert Level 1

At Alert Level 1 we all need to be ready in case COVID-19 reappears in our community.

If you're sick

Staying at home if you’re sick is especially important at Alert Level 1. The risk of COVID-19 being spread in the community is much greater when there are no restrictions on gatherings or going out.

Get a test if you have symptoms

If you have cold or flu symptoms, stay home and call your GP or Healthline on 0800 358 5453 to see if you need a test.

Maintain good hygiene

Keep up good hand washing practices, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and drying thoroughly. Cough and sneeze into your elbow. Keep surfaces clean.

Face coverings help keep you and others safe

Continuing good habits with face coverings will keep you and others safe, even at Alert Level 1 when it’s no longer compulsory.

Face coverings provide an extra level of protection in settings where there is little or no physical distancing between people, for example on public transport and in supermarkets.

We recommend being prepared by having a supply of face coverings for everyone who usually lives in your household. Add some to your household emergency kit.

Keep track of where you’ve been and who you've seen

At Alert Level 1, there is still a risk of COVID-19 returning to the community. We encourage you to continue tracking where you’ve been and who you’ve seen to help with contact tracing, if required.

You can use the NZ COVID Tracer app on public transport, in workplaces and when visiting businesses and shops. You can also add manual entries for places you've been that do not have a QR code poster.

Alternatively, you can keep your own diary with details of places you’ve visited, at what time and who with.

Public transport operators, workplaces and businesses legally must display the NZ COVID Tracer QR code poster to help customers to keep track of where they've been.

Keep your distance

COVID-19 is contained at Alert Level 1, but it’s still worthwhile to keep a safe distance from people you don’t know while out and about. This will help to minimise the spread of COVID-19 if community transmission returns.

"So what is this MENS SHED?"

The concept of what a man does in his shed in the backyard is brought into a community setting, so adding the atmosphere of blokeship and forming new friendships.

Those who join the Henley Mens Shed can share & develop skills, make or repair things, relate experiences, discuss health and other issues, talk about anything while enjoying a cuppa & biscuit or even another blokes scones.

Aimed mainly at retired and older men in the community, the Men's Shed has proven to be a great place to break the boredom that is often associated with extra spare time resulting from major life changes such as downsizing the family home, loss of a partner or retirement.

The Men's Shed is run in a relaxed manner where Men can just call in when they want, stay as long as they want and do something or nothing.

You will see blokes repairing things for home, or making a new item or a toy for the grand-kids, sitting in on a talk over an issue important to men, or joining a small team doing a community project. So many things to do at the Men's Shed - no wonder it's so popular.

New Blokes are always welcome to call in and check the place out during regular hours.

For further information contact the Shed Coordinator John Bush on 0274 999 430 or email - henleymenzshed@xtra.co.nz.
