The Clayton Bay Community Association (CBCA) are currently enjoying the perks of a new, multipurpose community shed, thanks to funding from Grants SA and the support of Fleurieu business Shed Boss.
The new shed facility is already working to complement and enhance the association's ability to create opportunities for social interaction and community connection through activities.
It has also increased the association's storage capacity for items essential to organising events and provides a safe environment for volunteers to continue their vital community work.
The new shed has also enabled the association's existing shed to be converted into a dedicated recycling collection point as part of the CBCA recycling program that has been in operation for the last 20 years.
The program runs as an ongoing fundraising activity, generating a yearly income of about $2,000, half of which is donated to the Clayton Bay CFS.
As well as being of practical use, the new shed is already being enjoyed as a meeting place for volunteers to share their skills, while undertaking essential maintenance of community facilities.
A CBCA spokesperson said Shed Boss Fleurieu professionally and efficiently managed the project and construction of the shed and in support of the community work of the association, generously donated $1000 to the CBCA on completion.
