Avenel Hall Project Begins

Tuesday, 30 May, 2017

Work has begun on the 100-year-old Avenel Memorial Hall.

Part of the 2016-17 Budget, the historic building is undergoing major works with the construction of three new meeting rooms, as well as a new kitchen, renewal of the main toilets and new ceiling to the main hall.

The meeting rooms, which are currently in the timber framing stage, will be located at the rear of the renovated hall.

The $400,000 project consists of $300,000 of funding from the State Government’s Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund and $100,000 from Strathbogie Shire Council.

Council has also separately funded the indent of footpath and carpark sealing in front of the hall in the 2016-17 Capital Works Program, worth $36,000.

The successful contractor undertaking the building works is Daniel Duna Constructions of Seymour, who has previously completed work at the new Violet Town Library.

Hughes Creek Ward Councillor Malcolm Little said the project was an exciting development for Avenel.

"Along with the completed first stage of the Avenel Recreation Reserve and improved walking tracks, the Avenel Hall upgrade is certainly part of an over-arching plan for the town," he said.

"It’s a very exciting time for Avenel."

The Avenel Hall project is expected to be complete by November this year.
