ABOUT THE VETERANS SHED
The Shed and Memorial Garden at Kibby Reserve, on Kibby Avenue, Glenelg North, South Australia is the first Veterans shed registered with the Australian Men’s Shed Association that is specifically intended for veterans of any gender, of all conflicts, and anyone who served in the Australian uniform regardless of whether or not they saw operational service.
Special Membership for non-service individuals can be Partners of Ex Service personnel, Skilled Trainers for the benefit of the Sheds Operation and those approved by the Executive Committee
The aim of the Veterans Shed is to create and maintain an environment for veterans and ex-service personnel where concerns, past trauma, health issues and welfare issues can be discussed with other veterans who have empathy through similar life experience in operational areas.
The Veterans Shed is named after Glenelg local William Kibby, an Australian recipient of the Victoria Cross.
The Veterans Shed is managed by the William Kibby VC Veterans Men’s Shed Association Inc. which is staffed and managed by volunteers who have a military service background.
The Veterans Shed was registered with the Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) in October 2011 (registration number AMSA 600), and has the support of the City of Holdfast Bay, who have given the William Kibby VC Veterans Men’s Shed Association Inc access to land on Kibby Reserve, Glenelg North (owned by the City), to build the shed.
