NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall visited Dundee Hall last week to see first-hand the results of painting works, made possible by $30,796 in support from the former State Government’s Community Building Partnership program.
Mr Marshall said the local community and Hall Committee used the funds to re-paint the Hall, both internal and external, as well as to repair the old adjacent school house.
“Dundee is a small, proud and active community and their Hall has been an important gathering point for locals over many decades,” Mr Marshall said.
“It is popular venue for community functions including birthdays, weddings, and Christmas carols as well as an important point for social connection.
“The new painting looks fantastic – the old, peeling paint has been replaced with a fresh coat and it now looks as good as new.
“The adjacent school house, which originally opened in 1961, was in desperate need of repairs too.
“I have no doubt the new paint will be thoroughly enjoyed by locals and will look even better in photographs during the many community functions and events that are held at Dundee Hall.
“I am pleased the local community and Hall Committee have chosen to use the funds in this way.
“Well done to Manager John Chappell, Committee Member Craig Klingner and the whole team on an outstanding effort to have Dundee Hall and school house revitalised.”
Dundee Hall Manager John Chappell said the committee was grateful to receive the funding to complete the painting and repair works.
“Without this funding it would not have been possible for us to undertake this important work and everyone is really happy with the final results,” Mr Chappell said.
