Hardy's Bay hall re-roofed
The roof of the Hardy's Bay Hall in Araluen Dr has been strengthened and re-sheeted.
"The government provided a grant of just over $50,000 to fund most of the work," said Wagstaffe-Killcare Community Association member Mr Stephen Hicks.
"The State Government, through local Member Mr Adam Crouch, recognised the unique value of the building's heritage, still used widely by organisations and individuals in our local community," Mr Hicks said.
The flat rear section of the roof was replaced three years ago after storm damage, and the interior walls of the building were also painted three years ago.
"When the roof renovation was completed in early May, the ceilings inside were freshly painted.
"There will be a small event to celebrate this achievement, when local life returns to normal."
Mr Hicks said the hall was built in 1921.
After 100 years of service in the community, the Hardy's Bay Community Church contracted an engineer hoping to improve the structural integrity and aesthetic appeal of the building to last through another century.
