Repair, upgrade Memorial Hall
Sir, Re the Finley War Memorial Hall and School of Arts hall.
As the War Memorial Hall has been verified structurally sound, a practical and relatively inexpensive solution would be to repair what needs repairing and upgrade what needs upgrading.
Site new amenities (kitchen, rest rooms) at the rear of the halls, accessible to both via the central hallway permitting independent or combined usage, and refurbish the central foyer/hallway to an attractive, welcoming standard.
Restoring the hall’s signage goes without saying.
This solution benefits the School of Arts and preserves the Memorial Hall (once the pride of Finley) for the community’s continued use and enjoyment.
Yours etc. Narelle Edwards Finley
