INVITING NEW MEMBERS
THE COOLUM Women’s Shed recently held its fifth AGM – a big welcome to the new committee members who are looking forward to an exciting year of diverse activities and fun.
Coolum Women’s Shed is a community-based not for profit organisation run by our members to help connect local adult women of all ages through shared interests. It aims to be a safe and welcoming place away from home and work where women can pursue a variety of recreational and personal development activities on a regular or casual basis and in doing so, feel connected to the local community.
We believe that regular participation in recreational activities with others promotes a sense of connection and contributes to a person’s well-being in many ways. Our space away from the responsibilities of home and work provides an opportunity to focus on their needs and build supportive friendships with women of all life stages and backgrounds.
Connection is a key motivator for sustained participation in activities, leading to health and well-being outcomes associated with those activities. This has the potential to have a longer-lasting and greater impact on women than one-off or short courses. We use the phrase ‘Connection through Recreation’ to express our purpose but there are many more benefits associated with membership.
