Younghusband Hall volunteers have all received certificates of appreciation in recognition of the 1100 hours of work they have contributed to upgrading the hall.

On June 1, Mid Murray Mayor Dave Burgess and CEO Russell Peate attended the Younghusband Hall committee’s tea night and presented certificates to all current committee members.

Committee members were awarded certificates to thank them for a range of jobs which have been completed, contributing to the hall’s upgrade. 

So far this has included the construction of a 10-by-10-metre steel structured shelter, plus roofing, concreting of footings, plumbing down-pipes to rainwater tanks, electrical wiring including lights, painting, earth works for a car park and replacing the boundary fence.

While the list of completed work is quite extensive, much more is expected to be completed with the addition of an outdoor unisex toilet, concrete floor for the new extension and a lawned area complete with irrigation systems still be be installed.

The range of upgrades on the hall come just in time for the hall’s 130th birthday.

The original building was constructed in 1889.
