A $1.7 million upgrade of Hallam Recreation Reserve Hall has been opened.
Built in the 1930’s, the hall received new flooring, car parking bays, pavements, a new wall, a retractable stage to the main hall and a kitchen fit-out.
New electric wiring and lighting, stormwater and sewer upgrades as well as external and internal wall linings were also installed.
Casey chair of administrators Noelene Duff said the hall was essential for “ongoing community connections”.
“For many years now, the Hallam Recreation Reserve Hall has been a vital space for Casey’s diverse community groups and clubs to connect, with the hall providing a wide range of spaces and facilities.
“After many years of continued use and growth, a refurbishment was needed to ensure the hall can continue to service Hallam’s growing local community.”
The State Government provided $885,000 from the Growing Suburbs Fund, with the council contributing the remaining $885,000.
