Major upgrade works at the Wangoom Memorial Hall have now been completed, creating an accessible community hub for residents.
The $350,000 of works were jointly funded by the State Government ($180,000) and the balance ($172,218) shared between Moyne Shire Council, Wangoom Memorial Hall Committee and the William and Lindsay Brodie, AL Lane, Gwen and Edna Jones, Ray and Joyce Ubergang and the AR Trigg family foundations.
The Hall upgrades were officially opened by Danielle Green MP, Member for Yan Yean, on Friday 13 March.
Moyne Shire Mayor, Cr Daniel Meade, said the Hall is an important hub for the local community.
“The Wangoom Memorial Hall is a significant facility for the residents of Wangoom and surrounds,” Cr Meade said.
“These upgrades have made the Hall more accessible for all abilities, and included major renewal works which will give the Hall many more years of use.
“Works have included new toilet facilities, including an all access shower, new rear decking and access ramps to the entry and rear.
“The kitchen has also been modernized, electrics upgraded, a new meeting room built, the inside has been painted, and new floor coverings laid.
“As the Hall is the primary meeting point for the local community the upgrades have also included the installation of a data projector and other IT equipment.
“The Wangoom Hall upgrades are the result of a dedicated group of volunteers working to achieve a great outcome for the wider community.
“Community Halls are often the hub for small communities and these upgrades mean residents, as well as community groups and local businesses now have a modern, accessible facility that can be used for a range of purposes.”
