Res­cue historic hall

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE Isis Mul­ti­cul­tural Group has of­fi­cially taken over the man­age­ment of the West Street Hall this week af­ter sign­ing a con­tract through the Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil.

Pres­i­dent Robert Maisey, who said the hall was ready for hire, ap­pealed to the com­mu­nity to use the venue.

He said funds raised from hire would go to­wards restor­ing the hall, which was in des­per­ate need of a facelift.

Mr Maisey said the aim was to save the hall due to its his­tor­i­cal links to the town.

“I don’t want to see the hall dis­ap­pear,” he said.

The hall, which can be used for any­thing from meet­ings and birth­day par­ties to wakes, caters for 30–40 peo­ple.

It has a kitchen and dis­abil­ity fa­cil­i­ties, in­clud­ing a ramp en­trance, and can be hired for $10/hour.

Any­one in­ter­ested in sav­ing the hall is in­vited to the AGM on Septem­ber 14, at 10.30am at the hall.

For de­tails, con­tact Mr Maisey on 0409 625 873.
