The Hobart Vintage Machinery Society is working towards establishing its base at Penna in the Sorell Municipality.
The Club has been operating from the Hobart Showgrounds for more than 30 years but, due to redevelopment for a Spotlight Store, it has been forced to relocate.
A long term lease has been secured on Council land at Penna and an agreement has been made with the Penna Recreation Association to use and maintain their land that borders the Council Property.
The Club has a membership of over 80 spread throughout the State and with this long term lease it is envisaged that the Club numbers will grow because we are locating to a semi rural but developing region.
Plans are being developed to allow for a suitable building where members can continue to work on the restoration of vintage machinery.
The Club is a member of the Tasmanian Men’s Shed Association and has received its support in development of the new facility.
The Club will be at the Sorell School Fair next month offering hay rides for kids and looks forward to welcoming new members.
