Time to deck the hall

BETWEEN August and November this year, more than 30 community-minded Wallaville residents volunteered more than 1000 hours of their time to renovate Wallaville Hall.

“It was a bonding experience, but we were all pretty good friends to start with,” Wallaville resident and organiser Lance Cislowski said.

“Community spirit really showed, and it was also a way of showing good work ethic to the kids.”

While community spirit may have played a big part, the $20,000 needed to complete the renovation came from federal government funding, facilitated by council.

Not only has the facelift brought the community closer, but yesterday’s Bundaberg Regional Council meeting took advantage of what the 100-year-old structure could offer.

“I congratulate you and I’m sure council will continue to support management of the hall,” councillor Wayne Honor said.
