We received a message a few weeks ago that the Mayor, Sae Bok Park and other members of the Yeongdong city council wanted to visit an Australian Men’s shed to see how it works. To suit them, the visit was set for 3.00pm on 6 April.
Eight people arrived, right on time, including a photographer. Communication was a little difficult with only one person able to speak good English but, with him translating, we managed to get across the Men’s Shed concept of working with the community and making toys for charity.
They were interested in a tour of the Shed, what the various machines did and items we had made, including a rocking motor bike.
The banner in the picture below, is about their 2019 participation in the Korean folk festivals in Australia, international exchange, Yeongdong Delegation. The Mayor is wearing a yellow tie.
