Seaspray hall set for big makeover

THE community hall at Seaspray will undergo an upgrade to improve amenities.

Deputy Premier and Gippsland South MLA Peter Ryan said the popular local hall, built in the 1970s, needed an overhaul to modernise the kitchen and toilets.

The upgrade would also include a new toilet for people with disabilities.

“The hall is the only meeting place in Seaspray,” Mr Ryan said.

“It is used extensively throughout the year and is long overdue for a revamp.

“The local tennis club, primary school, CFA, and senior residents are among the many community groups who regularly use the hall, which is also used for private functions.

“In fact, it’s booked for more than 200 days of each year.”

Mr Ryan said the state government would contribute $58,000 towards the $81,400 project through the Regional Growth Fund’s $100 million Putting Locals First program.

“The Seaspray Reserve Committee Management will contribute a further $19,100 towards the total project cost, with Wellington Shire Council to contribute $5000,” Mr Ryan said.

He said the growth fund helped communities improve infrastructure.
