Mr Roche took to the chair and thanked everyone for their vote of election. He said he was looking forward to working with everyone in the new year.

Mr Delaney said: 'We have achieved a lot over the last year and we can try and do even more in upcoming year. We already have our games room, with playing snooker tournaments over the last three to four months and there has been some great games and rivalry with members. We would like to welcome any new members to the men's shed up for a cup of tea and a biscuit, to have a look around and see if they would be interested in joining the men's shed. We are open Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.'
