On Saturday 7th February we will be having a Fund Raising Sausage Sizzle at Master’s (Hardware Store) at Learmonth Rd Wendouree.   Please come along and buy a sausage and support your Civic Hall.

The Demolition Application has not been withdrawn,  only the decision to pursue  the Demolition  Application has been postponed by Council.  Whilst we remain positive that the Participatory Design Process will deliver a design that will both please the Community and the Business Sector, the retention of The Civic Hall is by no means  guaranteed.

In order to continue our campaign we still need to do fundraising activities to ensure that if there is a negative move by Council towards the future of the Civic Hall, we are prepared physically, emotionally and financially.  Our hope is that the Civic Hall will re-open and the funds raised can go back into the Community for an event.
