Mount Alexander Shire Council has recently completed its third consecutive year of upgrades to community halls, with works finished at Taradale Hall, Newstead Community Centre and Baringhup Hall.

The community buildings have had a lick of paint, along with energy efficient lighting, new switchboards and wiring installed.

“Halls are such a valuable asset to each community and we’ve had great feedback from locals on the importance of investing in these facilities,” said Ben Grounds, Acting Director Sustainable Development, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

Peter Henderson from the Taradale Hall Committee said locals were very pleased with the recently completed works.

"The Taradale Hall committee and general population are thrilled with the refurbishment of the Taradale Hall,” said Mr Henderson.

“The repairs to various areas and the new paint job have brought the hall into the 21st Century," he said.

Since 2015 Council has completed works at Elphinstone Hall, Barfold Hall, Metcalfe Hall, Sutton Grange Hall, Maldon Community Centre and Progress Hall, Campbells Creek Community Centre, Bill Woodfull Recreation Reserve and Guildford Hall.

There have also been upgrades at the Castlemaine Senior Citizens Centre, Castlemaine Library and Ray Bradfield Room.

Mr Grounds thanked everyone who supported Council to complete the improvement works.

“Thank you to all the building and hall committee members who provided valuable advice, knowledge and support over the last three years,” he said.

“It’s great to see the halls looking better than ever.”
